I would herewith like to suggest the removal of the following, three tags:
- online – reason: too broad (and not really indicating a cryptographic area either).
- protocols – reason: too broad (more specific tags exist… protocol-design and protocol-analysis).
- bouncycastle – reason: might attract off-topic questions about implementation (see help center).
I just noticed (a day later) that those tags are gone from the tag-list. This makes me realize I probably missed something (and might be hitting a facepalm soon).
Each of those tags were used by 1 or 2 questions, which I edited to retag them using better-fitting tags. This resulted in the fact that there were no questions left that pointed to the tags I mentioned above.
Could it be that a tag is automatically deleted when there are no questions left that use it? Or, is this a misinterpretation and someone already killed those tags without leaving a note here (less likely)?
I'm asking to be sure I'm not posting superfluous stuff about things the system might be taking care of all by itself already…
Nota bene: I adapted the title to reflect the edit, as it might be useful (for future reference) to know if the system does this automatically.
