I noticed that the tag is used frequently by newbies who have just one problem which they need to solve. Will anyone mind if I start deleting these tags from questions which are certainly not related to problem solving? That will result in many edit requests, so I don't want to do this job if it turns out that I'm going to do something wrong.

    $\begingroup$ No hurry. I think the moderator have the option of deleting the tag without bumping (if that is what the community what) I notice thr same thing too and was wondering if the tag is really useful. $\endgroup$ Feb 4, 2021 at 13:33

    $\begingroup$ Start following the set-theory tag. People keep putting it on questions because "they involve a set". $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I won't mind if you start deleting the tag, provided you only do it to three or four questions a day. I don't want to see the front page flooded with old questions that have been bumped just for the sake of deleting a tag. $\endgroup$ Feb 4, 2021 at 22:23
  • $\begingroup$ We should prioritize new Questions which are inappropriately tagged. Removing a poor tag gives an opportunity to supply a good one. $\endgroup$
