The tag should be removed and possibly added as a synonym for the tag. People get confused a lot, but .NET 4.5 ships with C# 5.0.

Bah! I never thought to search for it, so I never saw it. We should flog those who used that tag. –  casperOne Nov 9 '12 at 16:24

Just retag all 10 (as of this writing) questions and after 24 hours the tag will disappear.

Didn't know tags can be removed this way - thanks. –  Adi Lester Nov 9 '12 at 16:08
    
All occurrences of the tag have been removed. –  ChrisF Nov 9 '12 at 16:10

It might be worth adding to the blacklist though, once the existing posts are fixed. It's the type of thing that's likely to continue to pop up again and again. –  Servy Nov 9 '12 at 16:10
    
@Servy - if it comes back, yes. The fact that it takes a fair amount of rep to create a tag on SO will help reduce the chances of it reappearing. –  ChrisF Nov 9 '12 at 16:11
    
@Servy Also, it would have to come back like gangbusters in order to be blacklisted. 10 questions doesn't really warrant a blacklist. –  casperOne Nov 9 '12 at 16:24
    
@casperOne Well, since it just came out recently, not many people are using it. I'm assuming that once it starts being used by a more significant percentage of the users in the C# tag we'll start seeing more people trying to tag questions with C# 5/.NET 4.5 content, and thus more people incorrectly tagging such content. As of now, there just aren't many people trying to use it. –  Servy Nov 9 '12 at 16:27
    
@Servy Take a look at my profile on SO, I think you'll realize that I know that .NET 4.5/c# 5.0 came out recently =) Point is, for better or worse, blacklists come about after it's been shown it's needed, not before. –  casperOne Nov 9 '12 at 17:26
