Duplicate tags

There are two tags with the same name "Web Services"

The same problem for tags: REST Services, Delegated and Monitoring.

Yep, it's because of the hierarchical design of the tags dropdown, which is a bad idea in general. 

  • Interoperability
    • Web Services
  • Web Development
    • Web Services

This gives us two tags:


The preferred usage for this would be to tag a post with both tags to provide the necessary context.

 Interoperability  Web Services 


Web Development   Web Services

But it should be a single Web Services tag.

Yes, and cloud of tags, does not show that hierarchy. And when I search needed tag by typing while create new post, too.

So, hierarchy here looks useless.
