I don't think I even need to explain why that is, but - just in case - here's an hyperlink.

    @TonyMeyer: Similar subject, different question. – Borror0 Feb 23 '11 at 8:27
  • @borrow0 I guess. It seems like adding "and blacklist them so they can't come back" to that would make it the same, without really changing that post at all :) Surely sci-fi should be included here? – Tony Meyer Feb 23 '11 at 9:47

    @TonyMeyer: It would, but it would be changing Martinho Fernandes' question and resuscitating an old question at once. Also, sci-fi, science-fiction, and the like aren't blacklisted? I assumed they were... – Borror0 Feb 23 '11 at 9:52
  • @borrow0 just because a question is old, doesn't mean that it's no longer valuable (true on the main site, true on meta). IMO it wouldn't have changed the nature of Martinho's question at all, so would have been an appropriate edit/answer. sci-fi wasn't blacklisted, but now it is. – Tony Meyer Feb 23 '11 at 20:05

Ok I added ^(fantasy|scifi)$ to the tag blacklist as well.


There were only 5 questions tagged (4 of which were closed) and it seemed like people were using them to avoid tagging the questions with something useful.

I've retagged them all, and will be automatically pruned daily if there are no questions tagged with it.

    It's not status complete. The tag should also be blacklisted, so it is not used in the future. – Borror0 Feb 23 '11 at 8:28
