How to handle an angry mob?

You can flag any comment or answer that is inappropriate and let the mods handle it. Also, you have a history of being fairly confrontational with multiple people on this site. Maybe take a more ...

Merge tags lease and leasing

I propose a more complex operation. The issue is that the tags lease and leasing have zero guidance becasue they are both trying to deal with vehicle-leasing and real-estate-leasing. Those are two ...

Rephrase off topic language?

Agreed. Updated to the above. For the 20 second effort, I changed it, but am happy to read here if there's any more appropriate wording, and will update again.

Merge tags "abroad" and "offshore" into tag "international" and establish tag synonyms?

Agreed. In principle offshore has slightly more specialised connotations than international but I don't think it's worth it to try to draw the distinction in practice. [edit: tags now merged and ...

How to get rid of cookie acceptance pop-up without accepting the cookies?

You don't. That's the whole point. You either accept the policies of the site or you don't use the site.

Add "vote to move to another site" under "vote to close" options

Migration seems like an attractive option for a question that is out of place here, but most actual experience is more negative: Posters sometimes don't follow their migrated question so it becomes a ...

Mass retagging, minor gripe

Nearly 260 this month. Personally, I find the "bump on edit" to be more of a problem than benefit. I've seen new users without full edit privileges offer what I think is a trivial edit, and aside ...

Spam posts are becoming more frequent

I'd imagine that if SE, with all its programmer people, could implement such an anti-spam scheme, they would. But your rep for links is interesting. Even 100 would work. Any SE member from other ...

What really prevents us from enabling LaTeX markup?

The decision is ultimately made by the StackExchange team, and the way to influence that decision is to debate it on meta. 5 years ago Jeff Atwood said it should only happen if "a plurality of posts" ...

Request: An off-topic reason of 'corporate finance'

Since you are flagging, not voting to close, the reason that you pick is not very important. Those with the reputation to Vote to Close (3000+) can select the correct reason for closure. If, as in ...

Request: An off-topic reason of 'corporate finance'

First, it's interesting that my view is slightly different. What we have, as a stack, are 3 choices we (I mean the mods, but ultimately, that means the members) can edit. The first 3 as listed above. ...

Mass retagging, minor gripe

it might be worth asking SE's developers whether there's a way to make administrivial actions "silent" as far as the recent-activity sort is concerned. It looks like there is a way. Apparently, ...

Mass retagging, minor gripe

I'll add a new answer to this, as it seems to be a problem at the moment: Here's an example: Powerball Winnings: Annuity or Lump Sum, adding a low-count tag to a question marked as duplicate with 0 ...

rename tag [mac-osx] to [macOS] in alignment with the official name from Apple

Done - this seems uncontroversial. Seems tags can't be capitalised so the end result was macos.

Merge tags lease and leasing

Seems an obvious one, but as it's hard to undo I'll leave this out there for a bit for comments first. I propose that we keep lease as that's the more widely used one, although I'd actually ...
