Should "microsoft-excel" tag be changed to "spreadsheet"?

I agree, Ben. There's Google, and there's also Open Office, and others, I'd imagine. No need for this tag to remain a brand, better to offer the generic word for the product. Done. The new ...

What does the [decision] tag mean?

I don't think this tag is useful as it's too vague and won't be useful for anyone looking for similar questions. It should be deleted. Update: I've now removed it from all existing questions. That ...

The "coupons" tag is being used for bond coupons, shopping coupons, and vouchers

I wouldn't use "product" as discount coupons are as likely to be store as manufacturer. discount-coupon covers both effectively. See Wikipedia's definition: a document exchanged in a ...

Difference between tags "income-tax" and "income-taxes"

I think we should merge them. Seems pretty clear-cut. As it's hard to reverse afterwards I'll leave it a couple of days before doing that. EDIT: now done.

Should [wealth] be a synonym of [net-worth]?

I'm inclined to just delete the tag from the one remaining question, it doesn't really add much to it and wouldn't even if replaced with net-worth. Perhaps we should first import the tag wiki into net-...

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 ...

Merge tags "share-repurchase" and "buybacks"

I agree they are the same and should be merged. For what it's worth, I'd vote for "share-repurchase" since "buyback" is more colloquial (e.g. "buyback" in wikipedia links ...

Should "debt-collectors" and "debt-collection" tags be combined?

I think the tags should be combined. One tag for this subject is enough. My personal preference is that the debt-collection tag be kept. debt-collectors should be made a tag synonym.

Merge tags "hedging" and "hedge"

Sounds good to me, I'd propose hedging should win as it has more posts (101 v 20) and seems more natural. If anyone prefers hedge post a competing answer and we can see how the votes go. If there's no ...

Should we combine HSA and health-spending-account tags?

The one hsa tag works, in my opinion, although unlike the US-specific Roth IRA or 401(k), it would require a country tag if the question didn't provide context.
