    Since there's about 140 posts with it, I think making it a software-rec might be better. Commented Jul 12, 2012 at 16:46

  • @DanielBeck I suggest we remove this tag similar to what is happening with the Summer Tag Cleanup Commented Jul 12, 2012 at 17:44
  • Yes, but before that, we could take a look at the tagged topics to see whether they need to be closed.
