Argh! I can't believe people are calling those things "tags". They're keywords, for Jah's sake! Not to mention that "tag" already means something else in the same domain!

    What's the difference? And would you suggest I use a different term in the module name even though "tag" is the popular term?

      It's not so much that there's a difference, but rather, that people should use different terms for different things, and should continue to use a single well established term for a single thing.

      I think you should consider using the term "keywords" unless it will seriously hinder comprehension and adoption by your target audience.

        If using the word "keywords" will confuse the target audience, then the target audience is far too stupid for you to want to target them with anything less than the Black Death.
