It appears that a tag was created called . It has no questions tagged to it, no tag wiki and I don't think we need to keep it.

I found it when it was associated to a question.

Can this tag be removed permanently?

Will go away on its own... –  Yannis Jun 19 '12 at 17:16
There are no questions tagged with it, so as @YannisRizos said, it will get removed automatically. –  Oded Jun 19 '12 at 17:17
@YannisRizos well look at that, I learn something new everyday and now I feel dumb –  bluefeet Jun 19 '12 at 17:20
Well, it won't go away if someone tags a question with it, but I think that's highly unlikely. And if it does go away, it can come back if a highish rep user uses it (don't remember the threshold, however even more unlikely). But since it's not a tag that it's used all around and keeps coming back, I don't think we can get it blacklisted - blacklisting involves regular expressions, thus no one wants to do it unless it's absolutely necessary. –  Yannis Jun 19 '12 at 17:23
@YannisRizos just a general follow-up, how/when are the tags removed? I couldn't find anything that says tags with 0 questions the tags are deleted on their own. –  bluefeet Jun 19 '12 at 18:02
@AakashM thanks for the link. I wasn't looking for zombie tags. :) –  bluefeet Jun 19 '12 at 18:24
