People get so annoyed at discussion type questions in SO. In fact, hardly any such question survives beyond 10 mins before its inevitably closed. But why then a tag exclusively for discussion still exist?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
By the current site standards, it should not be there. Almost everything that has that tag is "Not Constructive" (and in a really bad way) and doesn't currently fit into what is acceptable to the site.
That said, the discussion tag is now gone. I've removed the tag from 469 questions that it was on, and will never reappear as the tag has now been blacklisted.
A massive number of them were old, non-constructive messes with little inbound traffic. A good number of them were closed as Non Constructive, if not outright deleted.
It's possible that there are some that should be undeleted and/or reopened, and if so, please flag them for moderator attention or bring them up here on meta and we'll review them.
