Should [waffles] be burninated?

Waffles shall never be burninated, because they stand for all that is lovely and delicious, and without them, MSO would not be lovely (or delicious). If you didn't know this yet, SE's servers run on ...

Should the [Internet Explorer] tag be removed?

No. I think that would be misapplying the concept of removing off-topic tags. Questions about using the Internet Explorer browser on Stack Exchange are not off topic for this site. Legacy questions ...

Put [stack-exchange] in the stack for tag exchanges

I have to agree. Looking at the questions from the list in the stack exchange tag, there are none where the tag adds context, nor where removing the tag would remove context. Moreover, the ...

Burninate the "inappropriate-advertisements" tag

No, let's not do that. Let's go over the burnination criteria Does it describe the contents of the questions to which it is applied? and is it unambiguous? Yes, it does describe the contents and it ...

Confused about the use of [confused-users]

Seems like a classic meta tag of the unwelcome on meta sort. I'd say give it a week or so, see if anyone has any great reasons to keep it, and fire up the reaper :)

Do we need any [developers] on Meta?

This tag doesn't really seem to fill a specific purpose at the moment. The first question tagged with it is this very old (and closed) question (and is now historically locked, thanks mods!), which ...

We don't have any [friends]

Seems legit, unless someone has a great reason we should keep the tag, so give it a week then we might be able to get rid of the tag, and some of the questions too.

Do we need to clean up all the duplicate cross site tags?

Meta needs to be agnostic of the [language-agnostic] tag

Worse than being a meta-tag it seems actively confusing. It also seems to refer to *human* languages, which is a usage that seems incorrect in context. I don't think there's going to be much loss in ...

Will a good [job-interview] where I pass all the [interview-questions] help my [career-development]?

Yes, burn it. The name is (ironically) unclear, and very likely to be misused by inexperienced askers who are (like many askers) seeking "clarification" on some issue. That's obviously a bad use of ...

No. MSE is the meta for StackApps too, so questions on that site, including the tag, are still very valid and should be kept. So questions on the actual API go to StackApps. Questions about the ...
