Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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 currently have a (which means "not safe for work", in case you were wondering). This contains three questions which should be closed as too localised:

And one question which possibly actually is not safe for work, if your workplace is riduculously strict, but which could easily be rewritten in a more generic fashion. (I'll do that myself if someone tells me it's a good idea.)

After those are cleared up, could we please get rid of this tag?

This is explicitly a meta-tag. Burn it. – Jeremy Banks Jan 22 '13 at 23:42

Four questions with tag ==> remove from all four questions. Tag disappears after 24 hours. – Robert Harvey Jan 22 '13 at 23:46
    
@RobertHarvey. Well, I just flagged the three for closure. I'll rewrite the one decent question to be more generic and less NSFW, and remove the tag while I'm at it. – TRiG is Timothy Richard Green Jan 22 '13 at 23:47

The whole concept of tagging a question as nsfw is flawed.

I agree with @HodoHod that it should be burninated, but I disagree with the "body of a question" reason.

NSFW (AKA "acceptable use") policies and definitions are too diverse to make that tag worth the pixels on the screen. If a post contains profanity it should be removed. However, profanity is just one of the things that can make something NSFW - what about subject matter? If you can't adequately define the tag, then it shouldn't exist.

I say burn it. The body of a question should never be NSFW, and any links can be demarcated as such by the OP.

It's important to identify those questions that we don't want to open up at work. It has a purpose.

If you're ever uncertain about the content on the site, then please refrain from using your work laptop to look at potentially NSFW comments. :P – Makoto Jan 22 '13 at 23:54

It's the tag that would give me the uncertainty I need to make that decision. – Lance Roberts Jan 22 '13 at 23:55
