Okay, I'll bite, because I'm sick today and have nothing better to do.
He is now trying to change my question about Mueller's special council investigation by substituting "special-council-investigation" tag for "Mueller" tag. My question is not about special councils in general. It is about a recent development in a specific special council investigation by Mueller. I didn't ask any procedural questions about special council. I asked a factual question about this particular political investigation.
Your question is clearly about the special council investigation. This is a useful tag that could be applied to a whole bunch of already existing questions (the reason I haven't applied it to more questions yet is just laziness).
Contrary to what you may think, I am not randomly defacing questions out of sheer malice or to make some political point. What does "Mueller" even mean? Wikipedia lists 28 people with that name, including political scientist John Mueller and Gene Mueller, both of whom could be on-topic here.
I choose "special council investigation" because that's what Wikipedia uses and because as far as I could find, this is the only investigation that is referred to as "Special Counsel investigation". Perhaps I could be wrong there, and there is a better tag name, I'm not sure. I am sure that "Mueller" is an extraordinary bad tag name though. (I considered mueller-investigation but the investigation is still on-going and for all we know Mueller could be replaced or become indisposed for other reasons tomorrow and we'd have to choose a new tag name).
convince a moderator to remove "liberals" tag from a question about history of behavior of liberals in the US.
I didn't "convince" anyone, what makes you think that I am somehow discussing this with moderators? I'm not.
The tag came up in the new tags list. The tagged question is a bad-faith question from a bad-faith actor, and that it hasn't been promptly closed and deleted proves that the "liberal bias" on this site isn't quite as bad as some make it out to be (if it even exists in the first place).
At any rate, as I mentioned in the edit description, we don't really have demonyms as tag names, we have liberalism, but is this question really about the political philosophy of liberalism? No. In that sense, the republican-party tag is also inappropriate, but at least that's an established tag with more than one question.
In addition, demonyms can come off as snarl words, especially when paired with incendiary questions such as this one. "Liberals" in particular is often used as a snarl word by conservative speakers and authors. This is also why I retagged all jews questions with judaism last year, as asking about "the Jew" or "the Jews" can quickly give the wrong impression (even if the question itself is okay). There is little special about liberal here.
start a flame about whether "israel" tag should be attached to a question which discussed Poland's new law, but which Israel's government has made direct objections to.
Nonsense. I removed the tag initially (once). I could see how it was tangibly related but it didn't seem all that appropriate to me. A position the community in general seems to agree with. When it was re-added I simply shrugged and didn't do anything. Other people then proceeded to add it back.
I'm all for reasonable discussion about which tag to add or not add, and in general I don't actually care all that much. But when you just revert edits without reasons then that's not especially constructive, especially if it's about a tag that's clearly not a good one (like mueller). Adding a slew of personal attacks – something I've seen you do frequently since the moment you joined – doesn't exactly increase my willingness to engage in discussion either.
