Some questions contain the meme tag. What does this tag mean?

1 Answer 1


It should be removed.

Lifewire describes a meme as:

A 'meme' is a virally-transmitted cultural symbol or social idea.

They're typically encountered in the form of captioned viral images, as you can see here.

I don't think it's really a great fit to any of the questions it's used for here. I honestly feel that it would be more accurate to say "concept" rather than "meme" here, because there are a lot of connotations of memes being jocular rather than useful, so it seems out of place on a professional DevOps site. Even so, the tag would seem to be sufficient, so I feel provides little value and should just be removed from the questions it applies to.
