I've recently created the little snitch tag and I observed that it has been made synonym with firewall. Probably to be consistent with the already existing synonym relationship between pf and firewall. Searching for
little-snitch is:question returns 117 results. Some of these results are questions about little snitch such as :
and some other questions are not directly about Little Snitch but mention it in the question such as :
I think it would be nice to have a Little Snitch tag in order to regroup all questions directly about Little Snitch. The same reasoning can be done about pf.
Now both the Little Snitch tag and the pf tag are synonyms to the firewall tag. I think this situation is not ideal because:
1) pf and Little Snitch are not really synonyms of firewall but rather "instance of" firewall.
2) Little Snitch is an application firewall and has a different usage than firewalls such as pf.
3) better precision could be gained by having stand alone tags for pf and Little Snitch.
I propose to remove the synonym relationship between Little Snitch and firewall and between pf and firewall and let the tags Little Snitch and pf be stand-alone tags.
