manmade objects made out of stone, thus they should be implicated to stone

Looking at the posts, I see mostly misstagged rocks and stone floors. Seems like a rather pointless tag. Deprecate?

The wiki said that stone is reserved for man-made, fabricated rocks. Still, I don't support this BUR because I suppose stone is reserved for its natural-looking variant. post #1230059 depicts stone. While stone lantern and tombstone don't either look natural at all.

Somehow similar to how brick does not implicate brick wall or brick road. People might've use brick incorrectly while it should've been used to describe brick as separate object that is not part of a man-made structure. It's my fault too of using it in the past.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by these because they seem to contradict. Regardless, using one tag for fabricated objects and the other for natural was never going to work out. Stone and rock are basically synonymous to most people.

Sorry I forgot to clarify that rocks are reserved for naturally-occuring ones. For instance, post #5942504 and post #6081043 are actually be tagged rocks. In terms of terminology, I think stone is specified for man-forged ones. We say tombstone instead of tombrock.

There was a proposal to alias stone to rock over five years ago in topic #14476, which was rejected because of the naive belief that simply changing the words in the wiki would in any way change how people used the tags. Obviously this has never and will never work. If what we want is an umbrella tag for objects made of stone, it would have to be named something different.
