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

currently has 115 75 questions, a bunch of which are already closed, the rest (after a quick perusal) pretty much all fall into either:

  • Not constructive,
  • Not a real question, or
  • Plain off-topic

close reasons, in my opinion. I'm having a hard time coming up with questions that could both be on topic for Stack Overflow and require this tag.
The '12 tag cleansing even attacked it, marking it as "Do not use, removed".

Could be purged? Or should it be kept as a sign-post for questions that need closing, like ?

Users won't stop asking these questions just because the tag is no longer available. Eliminating it just makes it harder to filter them out. – Uphill Luge Jan 8 '12 at 15:43
Good point. So you wouldn't have supported something like this? – Mat Jan 8 '12 at 16:04
Oooh, a good source of questions to vote to close/delete! – Andrew Barber Feb 5 '12 at 20:26

Most people using that tag are either looking for programmers or looking for a quick solution ("I want this, gief"-questions), so I'm absolutely for this!
