>> longish off topic discussions

You can not get context nor understand the usage situations in other regions without this. 

If you want to tag just England, then the tags definitions will match everyone’s expectations. 

Trying to map Africa, SE asia, and America with the same tags is virtually impossible unless context is understood and varying definitions and situation are understood and integrated. 

these discussions allow for that context to be gleaned.
