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

Do brand/organization specific tags such as or provide any value on Meta Stack Overflow? I think they should not be allowed otherwise we would be opening gates for all kinds of tags such as samsung or nokia and others.

Because the impact is caused by the phenomenon called Amazon or Microsoft in that particular case, so are the and tags on place.
