What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 130 Stack Exchange communities.

There were only 5 questions with the tag :

(text parsing seems to be a very ninja thing to do)

I removed the tag from most of the above because it struck me as a meta-tag, but the last question (What should every ASP.Net programmer know?) is locked.

How can it be removed, and can (should?) we blacklist as a tag?

Don't worry, there are many more questions tagged with Ninja...you just can't see them. ;) –  Bart Dec 12 '11 at 20:30
    
@Bart - That's exactly what worries me... * gulp * –  Richard JP Le Guen Dec 12 '11 at 20:43

Locked posts can be edited by any moderator. The general plan is you can always flag the post for moderator attention, and explain that the tag needs removal. You can flag a locked post. Failing that, a Meta post is an option if there's a lot, but in general flagging is sufficient.

Blacklisting seems not too necessary. With a lack of precedent, it's unlikely that it will spring up again. Blacklisting is more for things which we expect continual problems with.
