What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

The tag looks like it has attracted lots of the same types of off topic questions as the tools tag. I suggest we close any off topic questions then burninate it.

But it's a useful utility for finding off topic questions tagged [utilities]! –  Cole Johnson Nov 10 '13 at 23:22

1 Answer 1

As Cole Johnson pointed out, it's helpful to identify off-topic questions. So it's a symptom but not a cause?

But on the other hand, should there be questions tagged "utilities" on meta?

Interesting quandary: do you get rid of a signal that helps you enforce policy, or do you shut down the signal in the hopes that its disappearance will cause fewer violations of policy?

As a matter of pure enforcement, the disciplinarian in me says get rid of it, but as a matter of strategic enforcement, perhaps it should remain.

This is a choose-your-own-adventure answer. I can't decide.
