This is in reference to Which is the Best Engineering College in Bangalore?
It was deleted, but here is the text for anybody who can't view it:
i recently completed my 12th class i wanted to do engineering kindly suggest me best engineering college where i can full fill my dreams.some one suggested me couple of colleges please give me suggestion to select the best of it.
The question has nothing to do with English, but is a request for college suggestions.
It's been tagged with phrase-requests.
Before it was deleted, I started to edit the tag to replace it with something appropriate, but realized that there is nothing appropriate. Nor can a question have no tags at all.
Ideally, short of the question simply never having been asked in the first place, what should the resolution to this be? At present, it seems we have to live with a tag that is simply wrong. However, that pollutes the tag corpus. (Although in the case of it actually being deleted, that might not be a huge concern.)
Searching Meta, I found What tags for a totally off-topic question? The answer there is that all tags should be removed and replaced with untagged. That, in addition to raising a moderator flag to have it deleted, helps to bring attention to it—or at least it used to.
So, is using untagged still the recommended method for this? If so, can a moderator change the tag on this particular question to that?
