+1, there was a new user (at least new to the wiki, as he hadn’t contributed 
anything else to the wiki), I think in 2012, who set tens or hundreds of 
proposals to abandoned for formal reasons (no voting and no modification for 
some months), some of which might have remained so until now. This included 
even proposals for tags that had been used hundreds of thousands of times.
