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

I propose the 'limit' tag for, ahem, elimination. It's one of those common words that adds nothing as a tag.

This is for Stack Overflow, I presume? Because on Math.SE it's probably a useful tag. – Aarobot Jan 23 '11 at 18:33
And integration, derivative, diferential-equation ... ? – Dr. belisarius Jan 23 '11 at 19:25
yup. correct. so. – Rosinante Jan 23 '11 at 19:25
the value on so is, however, epsilon. – Rosinante Jan 23 '11 at 19:26
Numerical Methods are a core competence for programmers. Languages are just voluble tools. – Dr. belisarius Jan 23 '11 at 19:35

looks like a legitimate tag to me. In Unix programming, “limit” is the proper technical term for a limitation set on the amount of resources a program can use (e.g. no more than x kB of memory or y seconds of CPU time). SQL is outside my area expertise, but the use of “limit” as a tag to discuss LIMIT clauses looks appropriate as well. So maybe some individual uses are ill-advised, but not the tag itself.
