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.

Currently, there are 211 questions tagged , with very little rhyme or reason. It has been used for many things, including:

  • Method/function calling
  • Phone calls
  • Web API calling

As far as I can tell, this tag means absolutely nothing, and could be BURNiNATED with no issues (0 questions tagged just 'calling'), but is that the best course of action here?

It appears we have the same dilemma with the tag. Let troggy burninate more!

Now I'll never find my calling on Stack Overflow. Thanks a lot, Troggy. – Pëkka May 5 '13 at 11:00

Delete the tag. I don't see how the tag refers to anything specific.
