I could add a tag for this question, although it is locked:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2762825/what-programming-techy-name-should-i-give-my-new-pup

The direct edit link isn't functional, so I assume it's a bug.

Nice find. Now how can I exploit this while it still works? :P –  Tyler Carter May 4 '10 at 10:38
    
You can bump them all one last time. –  Kobi May 4 '10 at 10:46

It's quite a useful loophole - you can retag migrated questions to remove the "belongs-on-..." tag. –  ChrisF May 4 '10 at 12:28

@ChrisF: Now I'm really hoping this gets a [status-bydesign]. –  mmyers May 4 '10 at 14:27

Dang. Wish I had 10k on SO... I could have made a big dent in [not-programming-related]. –  Jon Seigel May 4 '10 at 16:21

Alas, we had to fix this - tag editing is only allowed on locked questions by moderators.

Good find, though!

This fix will be pushed tonight. –  Jarrod Dixon May 4 '10 at 15:56
    
Damn - let's hope that the "belongs-on-" tags remain at 0 on Stack Overflow and Super User. –  ChrisF May 4 '10 at 16:13
