I've just stumbled upon the , used by 11 questions. My first evil idea was adding a (which I of course didn't do). So I'm asking for a consent here: IMHO that tag should be burnitated.1 Opinions?

1: For those who've not yet heard the term "burnitate", two hints here:

  • Most likely it won't be Android specific if a question uses that tag. Although, if someone has problems with /system (or /sdcard on KitKat), they might need that tag then. – Thomas Vos Apr 18 '16 at 5:55

    Then this fact IMHO should be part of the question body, not a tag. The proper tag is "file-system". Otherwise we end up with "mobile-data" + "offline", "contacts" + "invisible", "keyboard" + "not-responding" and other "useful" combinations ;) – Izzy Apr 18 '16 at 6:15
  • I agree. Those are very useful combinations :P – Tamoghna Chowdhury Apr 18 '16 at 18:12

IMHO it's useless. As you (@Izzy) said, the is the appropriate one for this situation, preferably with a clarifying clause in the question body (or, even better, in the title).

That's not to mention this tag () is nowadays a total misnomer except when it comes to the ARM TrustZone TPM chip firmware, which is (hopefully) burnt-in. Nearly nothing nowadays is really read-only with the correct tools.

This tag should be done away with at the earliest.

P.S.: What does "burnitated" mean?

  • What does it mean to “burninate” a tag?. Added that to my question, including related graphic :) – Izzy Apr 18 '16 at 15:00

    Agreed with this. I have removed the tag. – Matthew Read Apr 18 '16 at 15:47

    Thanks, @MatthewRead – I've added the status-completed for that (that's how it should be, right? Please correct me if I was wrong with this ;) – Izzy Apr 18 '16 at 19:08

    @Izzy You are correct sir. – Matthew Read Apr 18 '16 at 21:21
