The tag exists on the site. It should be an intrinsic tag (blacklisted, but treated as a site tag when evaluating incoming migrations).

Please add to this the tag too... Not sure what other variations we will find, but that's it for now.

This is a developer-only action.

    Agreed. It's kinda redundant.

  • @Shog9 please see the additional tag to be removed...

  • @AviD I think that should be a separate thing. “Intrinsic tag” is specifically a tag that describes the whole scope of the site. information-security is unlikely to come back in a migration (it only has a handful of occurrences on SO), we can simply remove it manually. Also security-effectiveness, which isn't used meaningfully. Jun 6 '13 at 9:09
  • @Gilles I think information-security is also a null tag, nearly completely equivalent with the scope of the site, by definition. (Yes there are some areas which are tangential to infosec, or only partially venn-overlapped, but this is the default. )

  • @AviD Anyway, information-security, what information-security? Jun 6 '13 at 9:22
  • @Gilles niiiicely done. Still wouldnt want it coming back, though... If a newbie really wants a [security] tag, let them use security-theater like everybody else!

Oh hey, this was completed some time ago. The tag has been blacklisted.

  • AviD removed status-completed because he wanted information-security blacklisted (it might have come in with a migration, I don't remember). Aug 6 '13 at 0:07
  • @Gilles Eh, there are no posts in "information-security" right now. Looks like it hasn't come back? Let me know if it does and we can see about blacklisting it as well.

  • I've checked, we had 5 questions tagged information-security probably starting with this one and now the tag only survives on SO (for the next few minutes anyway). Not worth adding it to the blacklist then. Aug 6 '13 at 0:13
