Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

Questions on Meta Stack Exchange should pertain to our network or software that drives it as a whole, within the guidelines defined in the help center. You should ask this question on the meta site where your concern originated." – CRABOLO, nicael, Shadow Wizard, animuson, James

Hmm, if they are valid and descriptive terms in TDD and Version Control, then perhaps not. But with just 9 tags, they can't be all that important... (For graphs and performance issues I would nuke them personally). – Bart Aug 17 '12 at 11:35
In version control, this is what is most commonly called a tag, so if anything the question should have the tag tags. However, the asker didn't know the meaning so wouldn't have used tags. This question doesn't need a spike or tags tag. I don't know if the TDD term is common enough to warrant a tag (tdd-spike?); given that there's only one question, presumably not. – Gilles Aug 17 '12 at 11:40
That was my reasoning too. If nobody tells me otherwise I will remove it tonight. – PeeHaa Aug 17 '12 at 13:09
