Tag now removed. Though you should have been able to edit your own question to remove it, which is effectively deleting it. – ChrisF Jan 21 '10 at 20:07
The question was… in case anyone's interested – ChrisF Jan 21 '10 at 20:10
I now we can remove it from question, but Do not know how to remove it from tags List. Just to make sure, it is not used by any one else, It id not leading somewhere. I thought, Mistakes caught and fixed early, cost less! – Asad Butt Jan 21 '10 at 20:19
I think that if it's not used it won't get suggested - I've just tried typing "1" into the tag field and "1m" wasn't suggested. Now there might be a delay for caching so it would be best to try again tomorrow. – ChrisF Jan 21 '10 at 20:28
Thanks for the answer, I was contused as still can see it in tags list, but you are right, it is cashing problem. Hope its gone, when I next see SO – Asad Butt Jan 21 '10 at 20:54
I've just checked again and typing "1" doesn't suggest "1m". So as long as you remove the tag the same day it appears it won't get into the "suggested tags" list. – ChrisF Jan 22 '10 at 13:21

You can't delete, or edit tags. Put in a request for an admin to do so if you feel it is necessary. All-the-more reason to give careful thought to the tags you create and use.
