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

This question was just migrated from SO, and it brought the restricted [faq] tag with it. Now no one but a moderator can remove this tag.

Restricted tags* should be stripped from the question when it is migrated.

*And blacklisted tags, when this feature is implemented in 6 to 8 weeks

I agree, this seems highly automatable, but for now you can flag these for moderator attention. Particularly here on meta where you can't swing a dead cat by the tail without hitting a moderator. – Bill the Lizard Apr 14 '10 at 19:03
I'm tempted to create a silly feature request, mark it status-completed, and wait for it to be migrated... sadly, I know better – juan Apr 14 '10 at 19:11

@Ether: Whoops! That was a poor choice of expression, given your gravatar. Please don't hold this slip of my forked tongue against all members of my scaly species!!!! ;) – Bill the Lizard Apr 14 '10 at 19:25
@Bill: no worries; I eat your kind for breakfast. :D – Ether Apr 14 '10 at 19:27
@Æether, what did I tell you? Bad kitty, bad! Leave that mod on the ground! – perbert Apr 14 '10 at 20:31
Refuse to upvote, even if I support this suggestion. You could at least have cleaned that question up, lazy furball! – Ladybug Killer Apr 14 '10 at 20:38
@Lady, what? – perbert Apr 14 '10 at 20:58
this reminds me of all the questions that get migrated from SO to SU and immediately closed as offtopic. this is automatable, sure, but how big a problem is it? if you notice a question with this problem, flag for moderator attention so the errant tag can be removed. – quack quixote Apr 14 '10 at 21:47
@quack: I did flag the question for moderator attention (Bill the Lizard came by immediately afterward and removed the tag and closed the question). However I can't imagine he'd enjoy doing that repeatedly, hence this bug report for the general case. – Ether Apr 14 '10 at 21:55
@Lady: what is it that you feel I should have done for the question? I did try to edit out the faq tag, which is how I discovered that it wasn't possible and led me to file this bug report. I also flagged it as a dupe, and left a snarky comment for Jonathan regarding his answer. I'm not sure what else I could have done :) – Ether Apr 14 '10 at 21:56
@Furball: Look and learn: – Ladybug Killer Apr 15 '10 at 6:48
@Ether, the small-font link you gave is actually marked [status-completed] now... I know it isn't, exactly, but it looks weird. – Pops May 11 '10 at 14:07
@Lady: baffled expression – Ether May 11 '10 at 18:38
@Ether: Waffles are nice! – Donal Fellows May 15 '10 at 10:05

Great suggestion - no need to overwhelm the mods :)

This will be deployed either tonight or in tomorrow's push.

How about letting Community user drop all the moderator-only tags and add support tag as new revision, once a question is migrated to meta.
