What's the purpose of the tag? It doesn't have a tag wiki or usage guidance, has 8 questions, and seems to be (to me) a site-tag: every question on the site could be tagged with it. I'm of the opinion it's not needed, but if someone else thinks they can edit the usage guidance to make it clear, that would work for me too.

  • Wow those aren't the greatest either. But they're not quite as ambiguous as [auto] thankfully.

  • Yeah, just looked through the questions and all of them could do without the tag. Can I get rid of it? It currently means both [car] (as opposed to motorcycle or boat), and [automatic-transmission]

I cleared out as ambiguous. I made what I could into and then deleted the tag from the rest. I then created a tag synonym to point it to so it won't be used/created again. Yah, that wasn't a very good tag to be using, no doubt. Thanks Cullub for showing it to me.
