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

The tag seems like a meta-tag to me, can we burn it?

@Servy Burnination is the process of removing them. You're thinking of "nuking". – casperOne May 20 '13 at 14:46
@casper I just tried to imagine what that sentence must sound like to an outsider. Maybe all our critics are right and we are nuts. Ah well.... – Pëkka May 20 '13 at 14:52
@Pekka웃 I thought that was a well established fact... – Bart May 20 '13 at 14:53
Note that there isn't a button that can remove a tag from all questions, at least not for moderators. The community leaders might have such a button, but they prefer the questions be reviewed by the community individually, since many questions with bad tags also have other problems. – Robert Harvey May 20 '13 at 15:40
And from what I remember of that tag there were quite a few spam bait questions. – Flexo May 20 '13 at 15:43
Soooo... When do we start? I haven't burninated something for a long time! – Undo May 20 '13 at 16:47
@Undo I think, go through the questions: either close/delete or edit out "quiz". I've removed maybe 20 so far – hayd May 20 '13 at 16:55
@hayden I can't close yet, but almost! ~2650. Come on, upvotes! I'll start some editing. – Undo May 20 '13 at 16:56
@Undo you can also flag to close questions too if it makes sense to (which just sends it to the close vote queue) – hayd May 20 '13 at 17:02
possible duplicate of Burninate: quiz – bmike Oct 1 '14 at 16:13
