A long time ago I asked Is the Etiquette tag a synonym of Professionalism? because the two seemed to be used largely interchangeably (I still think they often are). Now we also have ethics, which seems to often be used with or in place of etiquette (which could often also be replaced with professionalism).
Ethics in particular seems like it should have a clear distinction, generally being much more serious than the other two. In my mind it's an ethical issue if your actions are quite likely to negatively impact another person or business; it's much more serious than being rude, despite the severity of rudeness. It seems like overkill on questions like When sending a follow up email, is it appropriate to CC the recipient's boss? or Is it rude to leave an interview early if you have already made your decision?
We either need some very clear guidelines (in all tag wikis) and stricter enforcement, or some of these tags need to be made synonyms. As-is I can't clearly determine what any given question is about given one of these tags.
