In Should we dissolve the smart-contracts tag? Joris did excellent work to burninate the smart-contracts tag:

He was able to retag everything appropriately, and everyone benefits from a more precise tag.

Should we put in a request to blacklist the smart-contracts tag ? How should we make tag blacklist requests?
