has no wiki definition and is used in various ways:

  • failing to process fragments of audio or video
  • intentionally ignoring items when processing a list like a playlist
  • searching for the next element that meets some criteria, like a bad block on a hard disk, and moving directly to it
  • bypassing a process like triggering a log-in screen
  • moving the cursor in fixed increments like the start of each word

They are similar in the most general sense of leaving something out, but not in a way that makes the tag useful without other tags for context.

Recommendation: eliminate as a stand-alone tag. Create something like and that would apply to missing fragments and possibly ignoring items in a playlist. Some uses would fit the existing or tags. Some of the tag uses were probably a poor choice of tag.
