This is a pretty minor issue, but what should I do (if anything) when there are no appropriate tags for an off-topic question, e.g. this one?

I tried to delete the existing tags but can't without supplying a substitute. My inclination was to create a new tag, off-topic, but it occurs to me that if this were a good idea, we'd already have that tag.

Of course the question is closed and will disappear in due time so maybe no action is called for.

  • $\begingroup$ If the question, though off-topic for MO, is still mathematics, maybe the general-mathematics tag would do. $\endgroup$ Commented Dec 18, 2019 at 5:43

There is a special option for clearly off-topic cases like this.
