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

As of the time of this writing, Why do those Thai characters display on the web page with a long tail? is tagged with . I have no idea what this tag is for; I would hope that most questions would be interesting!

Does this tag need to exist? It can't be applied objectively, and I doubt it would help anyone find anything. If not, is there a way to mass-untag questions that use it?

> If not, is there a way to mass-untag questions that use it? -- yess, it's called burnination and it smells really good. – slhck Aug 19 '11 at 9:19
Maybe there are some experts of interesting questions that are following those questions. ;-) – kiamlaluno Aug 19 '11 at 11:43
+1 - This definitely falls under the "meta" tag category that Jeff wants to discontinue – JNK Aug 19 '11 at 12:42

I can't help it, but every time I see this picture, it reminds me of the single man. – GSerg Aug 19 '11 at 18:17

Good catch, I'm all for deleting/removing it. There are 26 questions tagged that way, and I don't see why the tag would be of any help in filtering questions. After all, that's what tags are for.

The funny part is seeing questions tagged interesting that are then closed; it seems they weren't so interesting, after all. The other funny part is that the tag is added by who asks the question; have you ever asked a question you didn't think interesting? – kiamlaluno Aug 19 '11 at 11:40
