Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

The tag is used for a variety of different things:

  • Relation database keys
  • Security keys (ssh, cryptography, etc.)
  • Dictionary/map/table/array keys
  • License keys
  • Physical lock-type keys
  • Key strokes from keyboards

It needs sorting out.

I think when it's applying to dictionary/map/table/array keys, the tag should probably just be removed from the question. The question should already be tagged "dictionary" or "array" or similar which should cover it.

The rest should be split into new tags. (If only we then had disambiguation tags - basically tags with a wiki excerpt but which can't be selected. Though now that tag excerpt displays it may be a bit better if it gets a tag wiki.)
