OK, just saw the tag today with six instances. We should probably burninate that one. Let's not let it get any more populated.

There's only 6 instances; just edit them out. Orphan tags are deleted daily

    That will still leave the tag to be used or recreated, it needs to be done away with. Oct 31, 2011 at 7:21

    @LanceRoberts It doesn't leave it around, "orphan tags are deleted daily". It could be recreated if a user had enough rep, yes; are you asking for it to be blacklisted? It doesn't seem popular enough to need it Oct 31, 2011 at 7:24
  • @Nightfirecat Get rid of them both and add better tags? Oct 31, 2011 at 7:28

    @Night, if a question is stripped of tags it acquires the untagged tag. Oct 31, 2011 at 7:28
  • Yeh, it's not a big deal, just stupid tag I'd rather not see come back. I'll get around to editing it out at some time. Oct 31, 2011 at 7:29
