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 noticed that there are 415 questions tagged with , which include questions about Objective-C categories, the <optgroup>/<option> tags, WordPress's categories, Magento's categories, etc.

Isn't the tag too broadly used? While I can imagine a definition of categories that includes all the specific definitions, is the tag really useful? Are there experts that follow that tag, and who are able to answer to every question tagged ?

Nobody follows it. (Hover over the tag on SO and wait for the JavaScript popup.) – Bill the Lizard Nov 19 '11 at 13:35
The tag has 0 followers, for your last sentence. I suppose it could use disambiguating. (Ah, @Bill is half a minute faster than me.) – Paŭlo Ebermann Nov 19 '11 at 13:35
@BilltheLizard The last question was rhetorical. :-) – kiamlaluno Nov 19 '11 at 13:41
