only has eight questions, but all save one of them fall squarely in the GTKY/poll/shopping list bin as far as I can see.

There's a brand new question on that list (which made me aware of this tag), and it seems to me that this tag is likely to only be used for similar poll-type questions.

Blacklist that sucker?

I like the idea of those questions (as you can tell from my response to that new one in SO), but I think they need a different home. A separate section of SO, or a discussion based programming site. –  chown Oct 4 '11 at 18:09

While we're at it, let's close that sucker too! –  Jeff Mercado Oct 4 '11 at 18:11

At least stackoverflow.com/questions/5520283/… and maybe some others need delete votes. –  agf Oct 4 '11 at 18:16
    
@chown: there's certainly useful information to be gained from some discussions in this vein. cocoadev.com might be a good place for "What's your favorite Obj-C category?" –  Josh Caswell Oct 4 '11 at 18:28

I'd close/delete all open and poll-like questions and synonymize/merge the tag with .

@agf: it's already been suggested and I personally disagree a bit. "poll" has also a meaning in web development (ajax) and database world. Or, at least split and rename it to "ajax-poll" or "db-poll". –  Chichiray Oct 4 '11 at 18:18
    
You're right! It's a bad suggestion. But there are a lot of questions in there that use it in the same way as polls. Probably better just to retag them. –  agf Oct 4 '11 at 18:19
