Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

So, we have a tag. I don't think we need this. Most of the questions that have it are... not good (a good 33% are closed). And those that are OK probably don't need it.

Shall we burn it? Especially since, even after it gets removed, it may well come back.

15 posts...edit them I'd say. I'm not sure it's very likely that it will come back. – Bart Apr 30 '13 at 12:59

Whatever old-fashioned book-burnings were, "good" is one of the last things I'd associate with them. – Daniel Fischer Apr 30 '13 at 13:01
    
Just voted to close/delete all those that aren't currently. Meta will get rid of it shortly... – ben is uǝq backwards Apr 30 '13 at 13:04

@Aditya By all means propose that for the top voted one while I hide under this desk. – Bart Apr 30 '13 at 13:14

@Aditya Please don't vote to close the top question on that list. The C++ community actively maintains it, so it's an exceptional case. Several of the other top questions there are already locked, but I do think the vast majority of those that remain can be closed. – Bill the Lizard Apr 30 '13 at 13:16

@Bart - a desk won't protect you from the resulting nuclear blast. – LittleBobbyTables Apr 30 '13 at 13:16
    
@Bart, BilltheLizard - I don't yet have 3k rep on SO.. So I am neither flagging them nor Voting to Close them... – Aditya Apr 30 '13 at 13:18
