Jul 30 '19 at 4:29 comment added Gimelist @gerrit that would be the best solution IMO.
Jul 24 '19 at 20:44 comment added CR Drost On physics SE we found it very helpful to leave the homework-and-exercises tag after banning homework-like problems. The problem is that the homework-and-exercises questions never really abate so we tag them and flag them... the flagged votes help the whole community delete those questions; the tag allows our more prolific users to filter out those questions in their searches and views.

Jul 21 '19 at 9:47 comment added Gimelist @Universal_learner indeed. For those too lazy to go to their meta and find out what their solution was, I'll paraphrase it here. They banned all ID questions.

Jul 20 '19 at 15:06 comment added Gimelist re your comment of closing the question, this does not help in stopping new questions from appearing. People who see this place from a Google search don't go looking at old questions to see how they were all closed, and don't read the guide (as we've obviously seen from our experience in the past year or so). The solution is to just make it all disappear like it never happened, and not tolerate any new id questions whatsoever.
Jul 20 '19 at 15:04 comment added Gimelist If the old questions can be deleted, they will not show up in search engines (eventually). So it's just a matter of deleting the old questions, and any new questions that pop up until the entire thing subsides. If the amount of work for the mods is an issue, I volunteer to be a mod in the meanwhile just to get rid of the questions.
