Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

I'm lazy, and wanted to see if I could add [or] to my favorite tags so I wouldn't have to type it in the search. I know it's not an actual tag, but I was curious.

Searching for just [or] gives results, and shows "Questions tagged or" under the question count.

Clicking the about » link takes you to http://meta.stackoverflow.com/tags/or/info which doesn't exist.

I imagine these posts are related: Tag searches with OR or wildcards are forgetful, and Search [tag1] OR [tag2]. This is probably due to the "or" search parameter being parsed as a tag, even though it's not. –  jadarnel27 Jul 11 '12 at 13:39

I agree that this is a bug, but the real problem is the questions/tagged/or.

There is no or  tag. The search takes or as a boolean search parameter and simply displays all MSO questions.

For a similar (I suppose) reason, [meta-tag:or] only works in the preview. Click edit to see what I mean. –  Dennis Jul 11 '12 at 13:34
