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

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
