Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Note: I've asked a related question, but @Cody was right: I chose horrible examples and focused on the wrong things. So:

Question: Certain tags on Stack Overflow remain as a by-product of allowing legacy questions life without flags. Could these tags be changed to moderator-only (I realize the concept doesn't exist on SO yet) to prevent future not-constructive questions?

I've included only two tags. Please feel free to edit / change / alter / destroy this list:

As to Cody noted: "a lot of questions that have been 'grandfathered-in' meaning that the tag can't be completely burninated, but also where it's very unlikely that new questions with that tag will be on topic"
