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 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
