is kind of a pointless tag, no? There's 36 questions which have it, each of them is asking for support with something different. There's no real purpose for it, since this site is for support and help anyways. Should it be removed?

  • Editing all those questions as we speak. help should be eradicated anywhere it occurs, IMO. Commented Dec 3, 2011 at 6:17
  • Why isn't the Help tag gone yet? it's as pointless as having a Ubuntu tag....

is one of those "meta" tags that seriously needs to go. It could apply to a vast majority of the questions on Ask Ubuntu and serves no constructive purpose. It should be killed with fire.

    But, but, but - how will I know which people actually need help and which ones are pretending? Commented Dec 17, 2011 at 13:19
  • Hmm, speaking of killing it with fire, could we have it burninated? Commented Dec 17, 2011 at 15:09

    @MarcoCeppi Why not just pretend all of them need help? That approach might help with our huge backlog of unanswered questions, actually. Commented Dec 17, 2011 at 15:10
