There appears to be no case to have a post that only has the tag, since it's completely unclear what that would be about (apart from a personal preference regarding something). It's like the weak version of subjective.

Also, given that Programmers.SE is about subjective stuff anyway, it's also a little redundant. For example, you may as well ask: "What's the best setup for a three monitor workstation to do software development?" It's not like you'd expect anyone to give an objectively verifiable definitive answer.

My proposal then is to remove the tag from all posts that have it and ban it if possible.

    Indeed, it should be blacklisted, but that'll require Stack Exchange, Inc.

  • That tag is a red flag, like [polls] on Stack Overflow. Some of those questions look OK but others look like candidates for closure.
