Another tagging question: Should we include the word "problem" for classical problems?

  • $\begingroup$ Larry, I removed the multiple polling-style answers you posted in favor of an open discussion. If you have thoughts on the issue, please please feel free to post it as an answer; but it is generally better to let everyone have a voice in meta to express their own opinions rather pre-posting all sides of the conversation yourself. It's not difficult to infer what the community wants from the conversation while allowing for the possibility that there's an issue we have not considered. Polling is generally not a good substitute for discussion. Thanks. $\endgroup$ May 31, 2019 at 21:45
  • $\begingroup$ @RobertCartaino I'm sorry about that, I thought this was the preferred way to solicit feedback about questions like this. I posted several others like this; I will go ahead and delete those answers, unless you have beaten me to it. $\endgroup$ May 31, 2019 at 21:58

A quick search on Stack Overflow shows that questions about classical problems are tagged like , , , etc. In order to keep it consistent, I think it's better for us to leave "problem" out of the tag as well.
