Does this site need a programming tag? It certainly doesn't give me much clue about what to expect the question to contain.

UPDATE: I'm retagging these questions, but need help, they are coming in faster than I can retag them.

This tag needs to be killed and blacklisted with extreme prejudice.

There are 122 questions tagged with : every question is about programming.

What's even worse is that there are questions that are only tagged . There really shouldn't be a tag that's solely there so you can avoid putting useful tags for your question.

    Agreed. I'll retag some, trusting you will do the same. Commented Dec 22, 2010 at 11:36
  • To be fair, not every question is about programming. Some questions can be about law, freelancing, business concerns, or other subjects relevant to programmers. We're a Programmers SE site, not Programming.
