Over 200 questions are tagged + separately (see ). Do the mods have special, laser precision burnination abilities that can surgically remove from those?

1 Answer 1


I don't know of any legitimate purpose for the tag's existence, and having looked through the questions tagged with it, I don't see any where it's justified. Seems to me that the best thing to do would be to burninate it completely.

I'll gladly change my opinion if someone can show a legitimate use of the tag.

  • It's strikingly rare, but there are some legitimate uses (see this question). Even then, how useful is that versus all the confusion inherent with the tag?
