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

Recently all questions tagged [ad] were re-tagged as either [active-directory] or [advertisement].

As I understand it, while all those questions were re-tagged, [ad] could still be used in the future and rear its ugly head once again. For the sake of disambiguation could [ad] be blacklisted?


Has this been attended to? There seem to be no more [ad] questions.
