Please blacklist the tag , its a useless meta tag that can contain literally any question. It should be purged with fire.

    I just removed 3 questions that used that tag. Its a meta tag, and gets used too often. We purged that tag a while ago from questions, but its been recreated.

Yes, the tag should be blacklisted.

I cannot see any useful use of the tag, so I propose that:

  • Community members go through the tag page and replace tags on posts with more useful and descriptive tags.
  • The help tag is blacklisted so it cannot be used.

No! Do not blacklist the tag!

I think the tag is useful and should not be blacklisted.

Please edit this and include any reasoning behind your thoughts.
