One of my interesting tags is not bringing up data. Seems the community has deemed it necessary to add dashes to it. How do I get rid of this tag?

You can get rid of any interesting tag by hovering over the X mark which will then allow you to click and delete that tag from your list.

Note: This has to be done from your interesting tag list. You can't just hover over any old tag displayed anywhere.

I think the problem was that they have 'Tagname' x 132 - as you can see on the right of this page. I thought the x was just some bad formatting on their part. – Sam Jul 28 '09 at 18:25
Yeah it can be a little confusing at first. – TheTXI Jul 28 '09 at 18:34

If you go to the home page, there should be an 'x' by the tag which will remove it. The same is true under Users - tab Preferences.

This is the answer that got it for me, the 'correct' answer doesn't explain where the 'interesting tag list' is... you have to go to the root/Home page. There's no button to get there that I can see, you just have to click the 'StackOverflow' logo – PandaWood Dec 22 '10 at 3:50
