We did some work to remove the plain tag recently but yesterday 2 questions appeared with the tag. Can the tag be blocked please?

    Can we do the same with 'vmware' too please, we got that down and now there's 144 :( – Chopper3 Jun 29 '11 at 8:03

    I don't think mods can blacklist tags, we can only synonym them to something else. Hopefully someone from SE sees this. – Mark Henderson Jun 29 '11 at 8:55

    The tag blacklist is controlled by devs. – sysadmin1138 Jun 29 '11 at 11:20
  • I don't believe it - another vanilla amazon tag this morning – Mark Henderson Jun 30 '11 at 0:35
  • @chopper you can't blacklist a tag that currently exists – Jeff Atwood Jul 2 '11 at 9:33
  • Balls, so if we clear them all down can we do it then or will the fact that it once existed still limit us? – Chopper3 Jul 2 '11 at 12:48

I went ahead and blacklisted .

Just so you know, any blacklist entry that doesn't get a hit in 6 months is automatically deleted.

  • What is supposed to happen with a blacklisted tag? I was just able to ask a question and tag it amazon. – Iain Jul 2 '11 at 11:26
  • @iain it's definitely listed in the blacklist table correctly. – Jeff Atwood Jul 2 '11 at 21:33
  • @JefAtwood: I can still ask a question with the amazon tag serverfault.com/questions/286466/… – Iain Jul 2 '11 at 21:43
  • @iain see my response there. Patience... – Jeff Atwood Jul 2 '11 at 21:59
