I've seen the tag being added to a lot of puzzles lately, with a vague feeling that there's something "wrong" about it. Today I finally managed to pin down what the problem is: it doesn't really say anything about what kind of question is being posed, just that it's - and I quote the tag wiki - a puzzle that "some may have already heard" (which is woolly at best and subjective at worst). It wouldn't work as the only tag on a question, which makes it a meta-tag. Does this mean it should be abolished?

Yes, this is a meta tag, mostly because it's opinion-based as to which puzzles the tag should apply to.

I have burned it manually.
