Why does the markov-chain tag get changed automatically to markov-process? I had an answer addressing the difference between these two things here.

• Even where tags are not quite exactly-exact synonyms, the point of tags is to help you find related information. This means tag categories should not be overly "fine" – Glen_b Mar 25 '17 at 3:53

• whuber, maybe you did not understand me. I'm inviting top people there to that question to say, in a comment there whether they (1) stand for me "we do need a separate tag dummy-variables (I've put some reasons for), or (2) stand for amoeba "we should make that tag a synonym to categorical-encoding", or (3) no opinion. – ttnphns Jul 28 '17 at 13:41
