Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Why do per-site metas offer flair? By this, I mean, are users really keen on knowledge about the Q&A site about something?

+1, will make more sense to have the Meta profile offer the flair of the main site. – Shadow Wizard Jul 25 '12 at 12:58

I was under the impression it exists here for because it is just as easy to do it as for any other site. It's there, so why not have it enabled?

For other metas, you just have the rep of the main site

It's a good measure of activity on Meta. Someone with a couple silvers and a handfun of bronze badges has actually been using Meta. It's impossible to tell that from rep.
