following the tag cleanup for march 2013 I have cleaned up the meta-tag. No more questions with move.

FYI, most of these questions referred to moving files - I have replaced these mostly with or . File-transfer seems rather generic, though, so it was not a satisfactory solution.

Most of the rest referred to moving windows or partitions. A few also to "moving house" or "moving computers around". Some could be used for migration to new computer.

Can we prevent the move-tag from being used again? (If I understand correctly, this is what "burnination" is for.)

EDIT: Why not blacklist a few tags at once? Here's a list of meta-tags that we should blacklist after cleaning up.

    As I understand it, burnination is the act of removing the tag from all questions, while blacklisting is the act of preventing future use of a tag (and usually only done is relatively extreme cases). There's also tag synonyms, where one tag is mapped to another one. – Bob Mar 8 '13 at 14:06

    Yeah, about time we get some tags blacklisted. All the cleanup is worth nothing if some users are tempted to use these tags again. – slhck Mar 8 '13 at 15:06

    @slhck There are many other tags that can be blacklisted, like [move], for example [removal]. – amiregelz Mar 8 '13 at 17:41

    We could keep adding the cleaned-up tags from the Tag review here and blacklist them all at once where appropriate. – user 99572 is fine Mar 8 '13 at 19:58

I've removed and blacklisted and . The rest look at though they're being kept under control without the need for this.
