This tag should be used on articles that discuss one aspect of the article in too much detail. This is especially true if the article focuses on an unimportant aspect of the topic while ignoring items of importance.
Wikipedia's neutral point of view policy requires that we don't give undue weight to any particular subtopic in an article. For example, the article on Earth does not mention the fringe flat Earth theory. If an article is tagged with this, improve the article by adding content important to the topic and trimming or deleting non-important content.
