Should a question be marked with a tag such as if the OP identifies that mirroring doesn't apply?

For reference, see this question which has 3 tags about tech the OP has identified that wouldn't be an answer to his problem.

In Help, under Tagging, it states:

What are tags, and how should I use them?

A tag is a word or phrase that describes the topic of the question. Tags are a means of connecting experts with questions they will be able to answer by sorting questions into specific, well-defined categories.

Tags can also be used to help you identify questions that are interesting or relevant to you.

With this in mind, I would say in general contraindicated tags should be avoided, and perhaps even removed from affected questions.

  • For that specific question I actually removed the tag because I really felt it wasn't needed. So your answer makes sense :-). – Marian Nov 22 '13 at 14:33
