I recently edited bug out of a question. Infuriated by the tag existing, I went to see what kind of horrible, horrible questions it contained so I could whip up a burninate/ban request.
It contains ... no questions.
But, on the tag sidebar in the question I edited, it clearly states that there are over 280 questions in it. You can see this for yourself. Visit the SO tag list and enter "bug" into the filter box.
What's going on here? Some sort of tag hellban or honeypot? Dare I call this a Heisenbug? It's been like this for a while (weeks), but I've ignored it assuming that it, itself, was some sort of display or caching artifact and that it'd pass with time.
Additional clues from the comments:
- The "recent hot answers" section inside the tag wiki shows a small number of questions.
- A search for
It looks like the calculate tag is doing the same thing. Three questions listed when viewed from inside the question, but zero questions in the question list.
