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've found three obvious meta tags waiting for a good flamethrower bath:

and the worst offender:

They are invariably being used for off-topic questions (process or project management, code review requests, etc). Please do burninate these at the earliest convenience!

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Can you chuck improvements in there as well? – ben is uǝq backwards Jan 25 '13 at 13:01
@benisuǝqbackwards: Ooh yes, juicy flame bait! – Martijn Pieters Jan 25 '13 at 13:04
And now I'm hungry for some juicy, flame-cooked bbq brisket chili. But seriously. How about code-review? It's not exclusively flame-bait, but nearly. – J. Steen Jan 25 '13 at 13:22
Where are all the tags for making code worse? – Ben Brocka Feb 6 '13 at 22:27

I've been doing a little improvement :-).

I guess that answers the question but I'd still like to get rid of the other tags I came across, whilst doing this, that deserve burnination:

I've closed and voted to delete some more, we'll get this cleaned up. – Martijn Pieters Jan 26 '13 at 11:54
process-improvement is now gone. – Martijn Pieters Jan 28 '13 at 23:40
I keep going through the smaller lists, voting to close and delete where I can. – Martijn Pieters Jan 30 '13 at 21:42
Hrmz; this question didn't receive any more close votes; my votes have expired on that one now. So did several others. :-( – Martijn Pieters Feb 2 '13 at 21:13
I've just seen your comment @Martijn; I'm experiencing the same problem :-(. I guess flagging them all would piss off some people... so I'm just going to have to hope that others VTC and they get picked up in the queue. – ben is uǝq backwards Feb 6 '13 at 22:50
Collaboration is not dead; there are 332 questions, of these are 33 closed. – Martijn Pieters Feb 7 '13 at 10:13
ARRRGGHHHH who did that @Martijn? It was dead. – ben is uǝq backwards Feb 7 '13 at 10:42
No idea, the oldest collaboration question shows no history of recent changes; last active 4 years ago. – Martijn Pieters Feb 7 '13 at 10:43
