I keep seeing users tag questions with incorrect tags. For example, a lot of apache questions are tagged with php, but in reality have nothing to do with PHP. Although users browsing the php tag are likely to know the answer to these questions, am I doing the right thing by removing the incorrect tags?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
Yes. Yes, you are.
Of course, be careful to make sure it was a mistake on the OP's part. But removing tags that don't have anything to do with the question is absolutely the right way to go. Sometimes, people will add incorrect tags just to increase the attention the question receives.
