# Do we need the tag [middleware]?

We've recently decided to get rid of the engine tag, along with api, framework, libraries and sdk.

I haven't noticed before but we also have a tag for , where the description is appropriate, but that has no tag usage.

Like the other tags, I feel this tag does not bring value to the site and is more a meta-tag than anything else.

I agree; we should blacklist this tag like we are doing with the others you cited in the original question.

• There were ten questions with this tag. 8 of them were closed, or ended up closed after I looked at them. The only two remaining didn't even really need the tag, so I removed it. The tag is now blacklisted. – user1430 Jun 23 '17 at 23:21
• You should include that in your answer. – CodingNinja Jun 26 '17 at 20:17
• @Tommy I never include these kinds of comments about the actions taken in response to a meta post in the post itself, even if it's my own post, because I want to keep a distinction between what was proposed and what was implemented, primarily for clarity in what was voted on and when. – user1430 Jun 26 '17 at 20:26
