While poking about removing the microsoft-word tag from a few questions, I came across a question tagged spelling-checker. This seemed to me to be a meta-tag of no more value than the ms-word one, so I removed it. A quick tag search reveals that there are 60 questions with this tag.
I checked the guidelines on when to ask about tag burnination, and I think this one fits the bill:
- It is a meta-tag (there are many spell-checkers available (although MS Word's is the most-asked-about spell-checker here)
- it is clearly an off-topic tag (asking about spell-checking software rather than a valid ELU topic)
- it does not add any useful information (Reviewing the list of tagged questions shows one question regarding the effect of computers on spelling (now closed) and 59 questions about (approximately) "why does the spell-checker say this is misspelled?", which is really a question about spelling, which 17 of the questions are also tagged with)
