This extremely broad tag seems to be on a variety of questions where existing, more specific tags serve a much better, specific purpose.

The store tag seems to have been used to mean both the and the , as well as the and , and not forgetting the physical .

Should it be burninated?

  • Yes. On the same assumptions as the [PC tag question][1] [1]: meta.apple.stackexchange.com/questions/2078/…

Yes. Burn it. Burn it with fire.

    Will do! At least there's not many questions tagged with it. I'll still spread it out though to not flood the front page.

  • @GeorgeGarside why bother it should get deleted and then I doubt anyone would enter it as when you type store as a tag it will list the actual store tags

    Any objections to my synonym proposal? It needs votes up or down either way...

Please vote for the synonym I created if you feel this will help prevent a generic store tag from resurfacing after this clean up effort.


  • I don't have the score for a +1 on the synonym :(

  • @GeorgeGarside Oh wow - if 26k doesn't cut it, it might just be elected mods that can weigh in...

  • I need a score of 5 on the tag to vote for synonyms I think; the error message could be improved if this is the case.
