What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

Over 200 questions are tagged + separately (see ). Do the mods have special, laser precision burnination abilities that can surgically remove from those?

I don't know of any legitimate purpose for the tag's existence, and having looked through the questions tagged with it, I don't see any where it's justified. Seems to me that the best thing to do would be to burninate it completely.

I'll gladly change my opinion if someone can show a legitimate use of the tag.

It's strikingly rare, but there are some legitimate uses (see this question)‌​. Even then, how useful is that versus all the confusion inherent with the tag? – MPelletier Sep 26 '11 at 14:28
Removing visual would also prevent erroneous tagging of visual studio and visual basic as separate tags. I'd be relived of some self-imposed cleanup duty... – MPelletier Sep 26 '11 at 14:30
So, in essence, I agree with you, @TheGuyWhoDisagreesWithYou – MPelletier Sep 26 '11 at 14:47
