See list of questions tagged filter: some of them are about ffmpeg filters (used for resizing videos and such), some are about filtering data in MS Excel, some are about organising emails... none of these things are the same, or similar enough to be covered by the same tag..

Maybe it should be split up into more specific tags. 'ffmpeg-filters' could certainly be useful, for example (I think this is the most glaring problem, since at least the others are about sorting data).

Split the tag to:

Remove the tag for other cases, since they don't appear to be significant enough to justify their own tags.

  • I've added some more tags I think are useful, after noticing a good amount of them in the filter tag. In regards to the internet-filter, do you think it would be worth-while to make the tags network-filter and web-filter synonyms thereof? Jul 2, 2014 at 17:59
  • I would think so. They mean practically the same thing. While there are different types of network filters, I don't think extra tags are justified here.

This is completed. At least, until someone recreates the tag.
