What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I just browsed at some questions when I noticed . Apparently, this tag is useless (one reason: no wiki) and is often irrelevant to the questions where it is used.

EDIT: I'll include for the same reasons as that of . (They should burn together!)

I therefore humbly open up a discussion on whether these tag should be burninated or left as is.

These tags have been BURNiNATED!

I went through the last 25 or so questions and all of the questions, so they will both magically disappear from the system in 24 hours.

I agree. It looks like a meta tag to me (can't exist independently).

Thank you for giving the term "meta tag". Now I have a "formal term" for those kind of tags. :) – Mark Garcia Mar 16 '13 at 12:04
While I'm not sure we need those tags, I don't see how they're meta tags. They are specific programming terms. – Lance Roberts Mar 16 '13 at 15:41
