[best-practices] tag is already banned on Stack Overflow, though there is a
[best-practises] tag taking its spot among newcomers.

I found a lot of related tags which could be banned as well. Search on
prac in https://stackoverflow.com/tags. Most if not all of them can be wiped as well. Only
practical-programming seems feasible. Some of the
practical tags needs to retagged then.
update: I wiped the following (should maybe be added to blacklist as well?)
bad-practices coding-practices common-practice practical-approach practical-use programming-practices
I'll wipe the remaining when I'm in a mood to do that ;) First a break.
Newbies often ask things like
"how do i conkatenate strings best practise??? please help" when they don't even have bad-practice working code. I champion such tags, even though they are overused.
I often write code I don't approve of and would like to know if there is a more elegant or at least more standard way to code. I'd hate to get into the habit of creating numbered variables and learn a year later about arrays, to name a trivial example.
