What is our policy on "operator" tags. Tags whose names are operators. So far I have only came across two but it is nice to know.

Don't know about "policy", but they sure seem pointless to me. Are there any is experts out there, watching the tag? –  Andrew's a Unitato May 9 '12 at 12:20

, yes. It's a library--we have tons of library tags. Though it's not that popular it seems, so really the tag isn't necessary. Yet.

, no. It has gone down the memory hole now.

Unless an operator is particularly problematic (eg JS for in), I doubt that we need a tag for it. The tag should be useful for filtering the question. There's no such thing as an expert in the "is" operator.

That's not true! I'm totally in expert in usage of the equality operator! –  Time Traveling Bobby May 9 '12 at 12:26
    
@Kobobby Well, now that one does need some experts! –  Andrew's a Unitato May 9 '12 at 14:11
