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 at 16:13
