I find 5 questions tagged and am not sure what it means or if it's needed. It seems the tag was later added by a single user. It also has no usage guidance.

Searching for "rep ability" yields 2 real results, both times used by Jeff Atwood to refer to 20k privileges. With such a meagre result, it seems fair to conclude that its usage never really caught on.

There are already tags covering this, e. g.

Having a look at the individual questions tagged :

1) Moderator abilities

  1. Implement Ratios For Moderation Abilities ( doesn't add anything useful, I suggest replace it with )
  2. Make Moderator abilities relate to Rep Inflation (already has and can be removed)

2) Privileges

  1. Lost my motivation after 3000 points (I suggest and (maybe also ) instead of )
  2. Bring Back the 200 rep level to not see Sponsored Header Ads (replace it with )
  3. Delete link missing (this is about 10k abilities, so use instead)

Do you agree with me or do you think that tag is useful (then what should it be used for)?

I am in full support of your idea – it's useless because whatever it means is already covered by the many other tags we have already had on Meta Stack Exchange.

I have edited the only 5 posts as you pointed out, and retagged them with appropriate tags.
