"Tag spag" on the tips of some of our tongues, but not others

As far as consistency goes, you are right -- we need to agree on a policy and follow it through. I'm not convinced by your argument that all language-related questions should be tagged languges -- I ...

Personally I agree with renaming postage to post and synonymising post into mail so that the latter becomes the main tag.

"uk-resident" tag - merge it with "residency" or "uk-citizens" tag?

I would choose to not merge uk-resident with uk-citizens. As rightly pointed out by Gayot Flow: I like the initiative to get very precise tags. 'Residency' is very context dependent. Students ...

Visa Rejection versus Visa Refusal (proposed tags)

Way to overthink things! What we need is a tag for "I applied for a visa and didn't get it", which of course can't be used for the name of a tag. There's no universal fits every use 100% perfectly ...

nyc should be a tag synonym for New York City

I think it makes sense. Moreover, new-york-city is already synonymous to manhattan and brooklyn. The mods can define synonyms instantaneously. If we get consensus here they'll take care of it. ;)

Visa Rejection versus Visa Refusal (proposed tags)

I don't know about night life, but drinking as a synonym for alcohol seems to me as arbitrary and unjustified as if we change "eating" into a synonym for "pizza".
