I recently stumbled across the mess that is the tag.

It has no followers, which should probably be the main reason for burning a bad tag, as nobody is currently using it to track incoming questions.

It ranges from error messages, the /var/log/messages directory, to people putting in email messages and accidentally using two tags.


It's done

I've retagged the last 8 questions. The tag has been purged from SF universe.


Agreed. Since I have a bit of time to kill, I'll start removing the tags from the questions. There's 26 questions with that tag; none of which were asked this year. Once that's done, it'll just disappear from existence.


That tag needs to go. The word is simply not descriptive enough to be a useful tag name. Tag names such as and may be useful as replacement. At least they are not as ambiguous. But if all the questions in question have other meaningful tags, we could ditch without replacing it with anything.
