I just noticed that there are several questions tagged , , and . Aside from one or two questions that actually relate to the computer use of the word "speculative" (as in "speculative execution"), the questions all seem fairly poor.

Examples of some poor questions:

Are these relics of the past that should be allowed to stay? Should they be closed? Some third option?

    Aren't those meta-tags and should be removed? – ale Mar 26 '11 at 13:28

    future might be valid when the question is about futures. – hammar Aug 26 '11 at 3:37
  • Just don't remove the tags until we nuke those questions – Brad Mace Aug 26 '11 at 3:55

If you go over the questions of these tags, most of them seem to be genuine questions tough and people have answered and upvoted as well. Some questions which do not make sense have already been closed anyway.

Probably only solution here would be to delete these tags from the question than deleting or closing the question itself.

    +1 I voted to close most of the negative scored questions in these tags. – user27414 Mar 26 '11 at 13:26

I think these are perfect tags to destroy. Too bad was burninated...

I vote to remove these tags & I would like to add to the list & only mention it as this gem:


will be left without any tags. Votes to delete?

  • Time gone by I would have said migrate to programmers.se, but we've been instructed Don't Migrate Crap, so here, have a third delete vote :) – AakashM Aug 26 '11 at 11:03
