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

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.
