What is the purpose of ?

A pasuk is not strictly a unit of meaning, and it seems that a class of questions that would be categorized by the unit of punctuation it does represent is highly technical and not likely forthcoming. I question whether the only questioned to be tagged as such to date falls into this ostensible category as well.

  • Re the only question so far thus tagged: Well, it is about a pasuk.

    @msh210 But is it about a pasuk qua pasuk or the contents of that pasuk, which is incidentally offset by two p'siki?

    I have found that on new sites, people tend to dump any possible relevant word into the tags box, starting from copying the question title to including any vaguely relevant word. E.g. on SO there is a tag "starts-with" - what possible value does that have as a tag? It's important to catch these value-less tags early, good work on grabbing this one.
