I appreciate your efforts of improving grammar and format of some questions and answers but why do remove for questions asking Puranic Stories? This clearly conflicts with author's intent.

Please see My concern about the use of mythology tag, Keshav's answer about meaning of word Mythology, and What exactly is the basis/reason behind calling Hindu epics such as Ramayana and Mahabharata as myths/mythology.

Thanks for editing and my point here is just to inform about tag.

Don't worry.

I am banned from editing questions because you and user named s.v rejected my most of the edits.

Mythology tag- Mythology means based on a myth(1st defination and largely used, no one cares about other definitions).

I have seen Mythology tag being used where very specific tags are used like Ramayana, Rama, etc. but what is the use of a very very broader tag (Mythology).

I also talked about this to a moderator but he is not ready to listen (maybe greedy for badge , points).

    Your act of retaliation on my questions is not fair. Not only me another user too rejected your edit. An edit needs opinion of two users.

  • If you check properly, i accepted many of your edits many times. Questions related to "mythology" tag has been rejected because user Mr green added them previously and this was already discussed on meta. You retaliated by downvoting two questions of me.

  • @Sandeep I understand your frustration with the use of mythology tag but it's already used on 564 questions, as of now and it was in use before you or I joined this site. So I don't think the clean-up that you are trying to do will do any good to the site. It will only cause further confusion. Besides, most users on the site already know what exactly the tag means.

  • @Sandeep A month ago I tried to point you in the right direction here in chat, maybe you missed that. If you want to create a tag synonym for mythology, feel free to suggest here, I suggested one here. Apr 23, 2016 at 15:59

    @Sandeep To answer your question, why the need for a broader mythology tag, if you are in to software programming, mythology-ramayana tags are similar to javascript-jquery tags (one is the parent of the other). A user might want to search on all mythology questions instead of a subset like ramayana or mahabharata. Apr 23, 2016 at 16:18
  • @Sandeep At a high level, I think questions tagged with mythology are very different from questions tagged moksha, brahman, vedanta etc. hence the need for a separate and broader mythology tag. Apr 23, 2016 at 16:23
  • @sv. that is the thing, If a question is tagged as Jquery it is not necessary to tag it as javascript and the same way if a question is tagged as ramayana or mahabharata then why mythology tag is added.

    @Sandeep Like I said, it's merely a classification method. If I want to learn more about Krishna's ancestry I would simply search for mythology+krishna, I don't really care if it's from Mahabharata or Srimad-Bhagavatam. But if I simply searched for krishna it would give me all of Krishna's Bhagavad-Gita teachings also. So I believe mythology tag is definitely useful. Apr 23, 2016 at 17:43
