I've discovered meaningless tag (26). Many of the questions tagged by it are also tagged by .

Obviously they should be tagged by instead. Please merge them into.

And what do you think about a synonym? Or ban.

26 should be easy enough to retag. Then you could perhaps kill off the earth tag, although that will happen automatically I think. – Bart Jun 6 '12 at 18:21
A synonym is a bad idea for a meaningless tag :P. Better just to retag and let the vague [earth] die. – Matthew Read Jun 6 '12 at 18:25
@Bart: Honestly I don't want to retag all of them manually. Also a moderator could fully ban the [earth] tag. – abatishchev Jun 6 '12 at 18:25
@MatthewRead: Right. Added an option to ban it. – abatishchev Jun 6 '12 at 18:25
Well, then I'll go ahead and retag them. That should solve it I'd say. – Bart Jun 6 '12 at 18:26
It's 24 now... but hardly any are tagged both. – ben is uǝq backwards Jun 6 '12 at 18:28
I've retagged a fair bunch of them by now (correcting other issues as I saw them) There are 4 left where I'm not entirely sure how to retag them, or if they should be around at all. Perhaps others can pitch in? – Bart Jun 6 '12 at 18:56
I could have done this in the time it took to write this question... – casperOne Jun 6 '12 at 18:59
Cleared up those last four. Also closed the crap ones. – casperOne Jun 6 '12 at 19:00
@casperOne Thanks for that. Wasn't entirely sure on those. – Bart Jun 6 '12 at 19:04
Thank you guys! – abatishchev Jun 6 '12 at 19:05
