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

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
