I just happen to come across tag on SO. Which I think is not a correct and meaningful tag.

It should probably be deleted.

Definitely looks like a meta-tag to me, yes. –  Martijn Pieters Jan 8 '13 at 18:29
I hate tags without a wiki summary. –  Austin Henley Jan 8 '13 at 18:32
Hey, it's totally legit. I will name my programming language thus. –  Daniel Fischer Jan 8 '13 at 18:47
@AustinHenley and I hate tags that no reasonable person would be expected to search on or subscribe to. –  Some Helpful Commenter Jan 8 '13 at 18:47
@Martijn Please can you tell me how 'meta-tags' tag is related with this? I am probably misunderstanding this. –  mtk Jan 8 '13 at 19:10
@mtk: The not-responding tag cannot stand on it's own. See blog.stackoverflow.com/2010/08/the-death-of-meta-tags as well. This is a meta tag as it cannot ever be applied to a post alone without other tags. –  Martijn Pieters Jan 8 '13 at 19:12
@Martijn Thanks for the explanation. I really mis-interpreted the word 'meta-tags'. –  mtk Jan 8 '13 at 19:28
