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?

    +1 Yes, it should go. – Nathan Osman Dec 2 '11 at 23:04
  • Editing all those questions as we speak. help should be eradicated anywhere it occurs, IMO. – Christopher Kyle Horton Dec 3 '11 at 6:17
  • Why isn't the Help tag gone yet? it's as pointless as having a Ubuntu tag.... – Alvar May 24 '12 at 18:19
  • Agreed, i guess nobody's bothered to blacklist it. – Thomas Ward May 25 '12 at 12:36

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.

    I like the "It should be killed by fire" part. :P – Thomas Ward Dec 3 '11 at 16:50

    But, but, but - how will I know which people actually need help and which ones are pretending? – Marco Ceppi Dec 17 '11 at 13:19
  • Hmm, speaking of killing it with fire, could we have it burninated? – Christopher Kyle Horton Dec 17 '11 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. – Christopher Kyle Horton Dec 17 '11 at 15:10
