# The “mathematics” tag

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 am with you on this. There are lot of useless tag's which are also not needed. – Chandru1 Feb 13 '11 at 3:41

I have removed and I added ^math(ematics)?$ as a tag regex blacklist entry. • Dear Jeff, thanks for doing that. – Akhil Mathew Feb 13 '11 at 4:03 • 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.) – Willie Wong Jul 5 '11 at 18:24 • @willie done, I added ^equations?$ as an intrinsic tag as well – Jeff Atwood Jul 6 '11 at 3:16
• ^math(ematic)?s?\$, would catch those who use the UK form as well :) – Ben Millwood Dec 16 '12 at 14:21
