Just found one question on SO with the tag . Got intrigued and went after explanation. Found empty wiki but used in 458 questions. Edit: 241 179 150 61 50 now.

0 to go!

Some tagged it because of target="_blank", others relating to blank page, others I'm getting a blank data report in vb6, etc

I feel this is a confusing and not helpful tag. Can someone clarify it so we can add a wiki to it, or should this tag be burninated?

    It’s useless, but will probably take some care; not too many to retag manually. I’m working on it too :D – Ry- Sep 2 '13 at 22:58

  • @michael958 I thought it was burninated a few days ago? – Cole Johnson Sep 3 '13 at 2:38
  • @ColeJohnson still in the works I guess meta.stackexchange.com/questions/177630/… – aug Sep 3 '13 at 6:05

    But if the tags are bad, aren't the questions bad as well, and better left alone rather than being bumped due to an edit? What harm is done leaving such tags in place (and then, indeed, allow < 1.5k rep question askers to abuse them again)? – Arjan Sep 3 '13 at 10:19
  • @Arjan Not all of the questions are bad. – maxf130 Sep 3 '13 at 10:26

    Don't just untag all of them. In many scenario's it will be better to retag with a more meaningful tag. – Dukeling Sep 5 '13 at 12:37

    @Arjan Problems with questions should be fixed. I remember a meta discussion about fixing minor spelling errors on very old posts - the conclusion was that we should do it. – Dukeling Sep 5 '13 at 12:39
