Please! It is a completely pointless and useless tag. It applies to somewhere near 80% of the questions that appear on this site.

I will continue to remove this tag whenever it crops up, so please stop adding it.

On that note, have we decided on some standard tags? Might be better to write them somewhere explicitly, since some people (like me) don't frequent Math Overflow.

  • $\begingroup$ Standardized tags are a must. I've been starting to adopt the MathOverflow-style tags (they work really well) if they are already existing here. But I do believe it is important to standardize our tags before Public Beta comes out. $\endgroup$
