As Laura pointed out in Should we remove the "culture" tag?, some tags are bordering on being solely subjective.

As per http://blog.stackoverflow.com/2010/08/the-death-of-meta-tags/ the intent on SE sites is to slay the evil meta or subjective tag.

So I propose - if you have a meta tag you'd like culled, add it as an answer below.

If you see an answer you also want killed, vote for it. If not, vote it down.


  • +1 = kill it
  • -1 = keep it

and we'll see how that looks, and then review.

  • 4
    err, to whoever is voting the question down, no, bad, you're meant to be voting answers up or down in this example ;) Unless you really just want every single tag to exist.

    The stuff I'm seeing here looks like they're not good tags, but they aren't necessarily meta tags. They're just plain too broad or ambiguous for most scenarios (and thus equally deserving of eradication should the case come to it)

I don't think there's much use for . I think I've even tried to nurture it after somebody invented it by putting it on questions talking about more than one country, or asking how to choose between some. But I don't think that's enough.

If you think countries is a bad meta tag, Vote up.

If you think countries can hold its own as a real tag, Vote down.

  • Well we never got rid of this one either. It's most used with questions comparing countries I believe. Much like destinations but both more and less specific. Aug 15, 2016 at 13:52

. To me, every travel question is almost certainly going to have a destination (Aside from "currency" related, or mile-high club ones).

If you think is a bad meta tag, vote up.

If you think is a real and valid tag, vote down.

  • I think it's a bad tag. I don't think it's a meta tag. But we never got rid of it, which I took to be a mandate that it ought to be used, so I've used it a few times a year. Aug 15, 2016 at 13:51
  • @pnuts well the 6 upvotes seemed to think it's bad, I'll give you that, but this was 4 years ago. I think we did actually clear it out at the time :/
