This question already has an answer here:

Recently I have been seeing a large number of suggested edits from a single op, changing the tag on older questions from 'installation' to 'system-installation' After the first dozen or so, I have started rejecting these edits as 'too minor' as a) this is the only edit to the question and b) The op seems to be either on a kick to replace all the 'installation' tags or to build reputation points 2 at a time, by finding all older posts with that tag.

An example of such a suggested edit is at https://askubuntu.com/review/suggested-edits/307128

The tag is bad and should be replaced but I would note that some of these edits are missing other details that could be improved at the same time.

I would approve the ones where the post is otherwise fine and improve the ones (you can unmark the original as helpful if you think it was lazy), but ultimately, replacing the tag is a desirable long-term goal.

Not all tags should be replaced with (we have other *-installation tags) so check that the replacement makes sense too.

Me too - same editor. I have rejected them all with the following custom reason:

Please don't do simple tag edits. It is too minor, bungs up the review queue and can be seen as rep farming.

However, I will probably be changing that to

Please don't do only simple tag edits. It is too minor, bungs up the review queue and can be seen as rep farming. Try to include body edits as well.
