The author of this question (now deleted) managed to not only ask the most off-topic question I've yet seen but also tag it with , and . They have a couple of questions each but they seem to describe just application features or data content. Remove?

Ah ahaha hahahahahaha. Incredible. – Pëkka Feb 24 '12 at 15:21
I can imagine a question like "How can I write a song as Perl code?" for which all those tags would be useful. – kiamlaluno Feb 24 '12 at 15:50

They certainly don't promote on-topic questions for sure or are just extraneous tags. Used mostly in a very localized manner (e.g., "I want to get the lyrics of a song so I can do poetry, how do I get that (in <langage>)?").

I went through and removed the tags , and on all questions that have them applied.

A lot of those questions were also close candidates as well. Search my editing history if you guys with closing/deleting abilities want to see these posts and add to my votes.

I also want to bring attention to the tag: follow. Just a "tag fragment" that people seem to be using the create sentences with or used in the context of social media to "follow" someone, doesn't seem like a good standalone tag. – Jeff Mercado Feb 24 '12 at 14:34
