Historical questions about recommendations:
The general consensus of these two is that the tag really should go away... though nothing has been done about it.
If the tag remains, it really needs a better tag-wiki akin to legal or career-development saying that its a very dangerous tag to ask in and needs to be properly formulated to have any chase of not getting closed quickly.
If the tag is to go, there are apparently a few ways that this can be done.
- Someone goes through and removes the tag from all the questions. There are 'only' 88 of them though thats still a mess... including bumping a number of closed questions.
- Have a mod do super powers to destroy the tag. I'm not sure what these super powers are, but if they have them... well, boom goes the tag.
- Have SE use their super powers to completely burninate the tag. Its gone and make it so that it can never come back.
I'd really go for option #3... Number 1 is a mess. Granted 88 isn't that big of a mess compared to some other tags, but thats still a mess... its about 2 days worth of front page activity. If SE doesn't do the 'kill it with fire' approach, if a mod does have their super powers, then those should be used.
But please, just kill it. Make it go poof and boom and other noises as it disappears into the
void* never to be cast again. There is no reason for its existence at all given that recommendations has never been on topic here...
