Within the past few hours (of writing) have had two tag synonym requests to clean up branding tags and to unify them under some centralized tags.
However, this brings up the following question:
Are computer brand tags (like asus) even necessary for the site?
Tags are meant to define what a question is about, not what's contained within the question, therefore they seem to be somewhat irrelevant as all computers are pretty similar.
Should we just burn all of these brand tags and prevent them from being used? Or do they actually serve a purpose on this site?
