should be blacklisted.

We had the discussion once before about what to do about homework. There it was agreed that homework questions are find but we didn't like meta tags like homework. I believe the tag was cleared and deleted.

The tag found its way back. We talked about it further and the possibility of blacklisting it came up.

The tag is now blacklisted and there are (and will always be) 0 questions with this tag.

Checking the answers to the questions you’ve linked to, I noticed most has already been said. Therefore, I’ll keep it short and simple:

If there’s an option to blacklist it, I’m all for it.

“Good” questions, which emerge from homework or exam preparations, will surely be able to make their way into Crypto.SE without that tag. And while blacklisting seems a bit drastic at first, it does make sense because otherwise, new users are bound to try to recreate that tag again, and again, and…
