This tag seems useless. Who would search specifically for or follow questions specifically about the differences between two things?

I like Aaronut's rule of thumb,

If you can't look at a tag and honestly say "somebody's probably written a book about this" then it shouldn't exist as a tag.

    There are so few instances that you could just remove yourself, I think. I'm guessing that on most of the rare occasions this might be useful, substitutions might apply anyway.
