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 was about to edit out the tag on this question (body is a useless tag, should almost always be HTML, most questions are asking about the BODY tag in HTML)

How to stick the document's border to the bottom?

However, I don't have the ability to edit merged questions. Is this by design? I have permission to edit normal questions.

Does that mean bad tags are frozen in time forever? – Incognito Jan 3 '12 at 20:46
@Incognito No, moderators can still edit or remove them. Feel free to flag posts like the one you linked to that are preventing bad tags from being wiped out. (The body tag is no more.) – Bill the Lizard Jan 3 '12 at 20:57
Thanks @BilltheLizard. That was the last of the [body] tags! Now on to the other useless html-element tags (at some point) =) – jadarnel27 Jan 3 '12 at 21:12
I know this is meta, but what is helpful here (gives the solution) is Bill's comment. The content of this answer post just states the obvious. – BartoszKP Jan 24 '14 at 11:48
