Can we treat this to be just as subjective as the best-practices tag?

People are so resourceful, it's fascinating. –  Pëkka Oct 1 '11 at 15:29
    
It's the worst practice, but the best one we've come up with yet. –  user7116 Oct 1 '11 at 15:41
    
Maybe I'm just not fully awake yet, but what does "Can we do the same subjective-issue" mean? –  Chris Frederick Oct 1 '11 at 17:15
    
@Chris We don't allow "best practices" because it's subjective. –  Incognito Oct 1 '11 at 17:33
    
There aren't any questions left tagged best-approach. –  agf Oct 1 '11 at 17:35
    
Maybe someone will figure out someday that if people keep finding a way around this, there is probably a reason. Fighting natural tendencies is a tough row to hoe. –  Lance Roberts Oct 1 '11 at 17:37
    
@agf About 2 hours ago we had 9 of them since the 28th, someone must have changed it. –  Incognito Oct 1 '11 at 18:11
    
I'm sure, someone just went through and removed the tag, I guess. Wasn't me! –  agf Oct 1 '11 at 18:12

I removed the tag from those questions. If no one else use this tag before end of day, it should after the new day be unreuseable for users who don't have enough rep to create tags. Blacklisting the tag should permanently prevent tag revival by users with enough tag-creation rep.

For reference (so that others can if necessary close them as Not Constructive or delete them if already closed), here are the questions:

These are almost all "make a list" type questions, so they should be closed. There is one that might be characterized as "review my code" instead, but that is also off-topic.

By all means baninate the tag, but in the mean time it provides a nice list of question that should be considered for closing.

Well, those questions might have a better change on other SE sites, like code review, maybe programmers, etc. Perhaps the answer is suggest the other sites? –  Incognito Oct 1 '11 at 17:34
    
Closing includes migration where that applies, and in any case closing and offering advice on better site selection are not mutually exclusive. –  dmckee Oct 1 '11 at 17:50
