The tag has 12 questions for now, and I don't think it's a proper tag. It has no tag wiki.

In some cases it's just useless, in others can be replaced with tag and perhaps adding tag if it's about users abusing the system.

Thoughts? Objections? Please don't go and burninate right away, let's give people time to post their objection, e.g. at least a full day.

    @MEE yes, the only valid use of specific-user tag is for cases where only one user is bugged, which are very rare. – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard May 28 '19 at 10:44

I agree with your reasoning that the tag is not needed, but I feel that a major reason to go ahead and do it now is that using the tag is not nice. We have:

This is a generalization of the practice known as Person-first language, which is widely accepted as polite. Label the behavior we want to eliminate, not the person with the problem. There's no reason to have as an exception. If and are not enough, you can tag , , , or by the specific kind of inappropriate behavior (e.g. , , or ).
