I just removed the tag from a question regarding viewing of source code for a browser, and it got me thinking that this is somewhat a meta-tag.

There exists tags such as and , and most current tagged questions are related to these or similar external devices.

The tag was also mentioned in the Tag cleanup for January 2013 post.

It is back, with 100 questions tagged for it. I suggest black-listing it as well

    I vote we replace external with burninate. Pretty applicable for external CD/DVD-RW drives, IMO. Jan 30, 2013 at 23:47
