I've just noticed that a tag has snuck in. It's on five questions.

Well apart from the fact it should be 'tourists' or 'tourism' it's probably far too broad to be of any use.

In the question I first spotted it in my guess is that somebody typed "tourist visas" into the tag area. Since tags can't contain spaces and both "tourist" and "visas" already existed as tags, the system happily added them.

I'd be surprised if less than half the questions here are about tourism. Probably most of the questions not about business travel.

In any case for the two more specific fields that come to mind we already have better specific tags: and .

What think ye?

  • @pnuts: Yes if that doesn't go away within a week as part of the system's self-cleaning mechanism, we need to report it as a bug. That way not only will our problem get cleaned up, but similar problems won't be able to affect other SE sites perhaps without being noticed. Aug 18, 2016 at 5:50
  • @pnuts: Hmm OK you seem to be quite well versed in the situation (-: Aug 18, 2016 at 12:39
  • Maybe there should be more specific tags, such as "businesstravel" or "longtermtravel"? My first question here was not a tourist question but an "expat-questions".

Burn it with fire. It's prone to misuse, has very little value, and as you've noted, better specific tags are available.
