There is a new tag, "etthics". It is a misspelling of "ethics".

I suggested that "etthics" be a synonym for "ethics", but, now that I think about it, that is not what I would like to see happen because it clutters the list of tags with misspelled tags. I think it should just be edited in some way.

Another tag like this is "conciousness". It is a misspelling of the already existing tag "consciousness".

What should one do about misspelled tags?

Simply edit the questions to link to the right tags. Once the misspelled tags have no questions that link to them, they will be automatically removed (see this meta question).

  • Good idea. I hadn't thought of that. I hope a couple users will vote-down my synonym suggestion to make sure it doesn't appear. – Frank Hubeny Sep 20 '18 at 16:12
  • Alternately if it really happens often make the bad spelling an alias and then it will auto-switch. – virmaior Sep 28 '18 at 2:29
