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

I just came across a question that used the tag, and it made me wonder, "What's the point of this tag, anyways?" The majority of the cases appear to be people just asking "Give me the codes".

It looks like it was previously asked to merge the [sample-code] and [code-sample] tags, and the accepted answer was that the tags should be blacklisted, but more than a year later, here we are. Both tags still exist.

Can we get a burninate on aisle 3?
