What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I just looked at the tag, and the question seem to vary among reading binary data (from somewhere), reading text, reading files, and other unrelated things. There's only 6 subscribers and no tag wiki, along with a small count of questions.

What should be done with the tag?

Agreed, both and are now burninated.

Only two questions were left untagged (may be referring to deleted questions), which indicates to me that these tags were 99.99% superfluous.

Kill it! It's not helpful at all, and it could mean almost anything, as you say, depending on the context. I'm starting removal now :)

Any reason for the downvote? – Ryan O'Hara Jun 4 '12 at 3:51

In that token, wouldn't also make a decent candidate for burnination too? They're both I/O operations, and could handle both cases neatly.

(And yes, I'm all for cleaning out .)
