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

Currently there is a on SO.

It seems to represent several separate things in several languages.

  • Is a point contained in a shape?
  • Does a string contain another string?
  • Does a list/collection/object contain another object?

Should the tag be removed or re-tagged to only mean one of those things. Currently it seems useless to me.
