Q: Ignore this question

Anton GeraschenkoThis question is a hacky way to create some tags for you to use. Move along.

I think it can be safely deleted at this point. (Perhaps only a moderator can do it, though?) Of course, no harm in having it lie around, either.
TBH, I would agree with the text in the lock saying that it "has historical significance."
It is always interesting to look at the first question on the site. (Which is not always the same as the oldest question on the site. But since MO started outside the SE network, migration wasn't an option at the beginning - so I don't suppose something like that could happen here.)
