What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 144 Stack Exchange communities.

I see there are some questions (182, at this moment) that are tagged . Looking at some of those questions, it seems they are completely non-related to each other.

Should the tag be removed, or does it have a specific meaning? In the latter case, what should its tag wiki be?

It means you shouldn't look at the question. –  LarsTech Nov 17 '11 at 16:56
    
In that case, the tag is well ignored. :-) –  kiamlaluno Nov 17 '11 at 17:00

It looks like a terribly dumb tag and should probably be burninated. –  Pëkka Nov 17 '11 at 17:12

It looks like it's been used in conjunction with and a good bit. I can't think of any specific meaning that would justify keeping this tag.

For the sake of being thorough, Wikipedia can't either— the only two remotely programming-related items on the disambiguation page for "pass" are:

My guess is it's a meaningless tag that got popular by the way of people using generic words from their question titles as tags.

Also note that there are no questions that use [pass] as their only tag (as of the last Data Explorer update), so it wouldn't orphan any questions if the tag were nuked.
