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

The new tags page has descriptions below each tag derived from the tag wiki excerpt. The page seems to chop off the first few words of some excerpts, such as when they start with "[tagname] is" "Questions for", and so on.

How does this filter work exactly, and what words are removed?
