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:
- discussion -- 514 questions with 16 asked this month
- career-development -- 1252 questions with 25 asked this month
As to career-development 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"
