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

We're having trouble getting the tag to be automatically removed because people keep using it so much, since it shows up first in the tag suggestions list when you type in "mvc4".

Would it be possible to remove the tag or make it a synonym of (though, the latter would only expand confusion between framework and design pattern for ASP.NET users) on Stack Overflow?

.. and another user (somewhat chronic help-vamp) made a topic in this tag:

You mean MVC4 is a design pattern as well as a framework? Never knew. Did ASP.NET MVC 4 reimagine the MVC pattern or something? – BoltClock's a Unicorn Nov 11 '12 at 3:33
@BoltClock'saUnicorn , this is exactly, what i meant by "confusion". No, it is not a pattern. It is a simple misnaming. Just like if people would start to tag IE10 questions as internet-10. Also, form ~10 post, that have been in this tag, most of them have no other ASP.NET MVC related tags, which means, that they would not be visible to the people, who actually understand the framework. – teresko Nov 11 '12 at 4:06
I've been nuking it every time it's been created. Unfortunately it happens every few days, then sticks around for 12-48 hours based on how often others accidentally pick it rather than think about their tags. – Charles Nov 11 '12 at 6:45
