Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 is a duplicate of Can we disallow the use of “belongs-on-xxxxxxx” and “not-programming-related” tags?, but I'm bringing it up again because it sounded last time like "We would blacklist this if we could, but SO doesn't support it", and that's no longer the case.

Most people seem to follow Shog9's advice of removing [not-programming-related] as they come across it, and the synopsis on the tag info page begins:

Please do not use this tag.

Is there a reason to not just blacklist it, or was it just that in the past blacklisting didn't exist?

Well... Might be useful to leave it for the moment, so we can migrate the questions to the NPR site when it comes out of beta... – Shog9 Sep 2 '10 at 22:38
@Shog9 I imagine mass-migrating all 769 would be a bad idea, but it might be good for somebody to poke through them and migrate the best ones – Michael Mrozek Sep 2 '10 at 22:44
@Shoq - NPR? You think Terry Gross will interview them? – Peter Ajtai Sep 2 '10 at 22:47
@Peter: it's no more than they deserve... – Shog9 Sep 2 '10 at 23:24

This is completed; tag destroyed.
