I don't understand why there is a tag for "mathematics" when that is the title of this site. Does anyone think it should not be deleted?

I agree -- we always remove tags that are the same as the title of the site, e.g. [wordpress] on wordpress, [apple] on apple, etc.

I have removed and I added ^math(ematics)?$ as a tag regex blacklist entry.

  • $\begingroup$ Can we also black-list equation(s) as a tag? I'm rather tired of playing whack-a-mole with it. See discussion meta.math.stackexchange.com/questions/1363/… in another meta thread. (I'll clean up the remnants in a bit.) $\endgroup$ Jul 5, 2011 at 18:24
  • $\begingroup$ @willie done, I added ^equations?$ as an intrinsic tag as well $\endgroup$ Jul 6, 2011 at 3:16

    $\begingroup$ ^math(ematic)?s?$, would catch those who use the UK form as well :) $\endgroup$ Dec 16, 2012 at 14:21
