Should it stay?
Wow, what a mess. Most of the questions tagged freelance were already closed for various reasons, so it wasn't a hard decision to delete the vast majority of them. As mentioned in the comments above, Popular Demand edited two of them into shape, and I removed the tag from those.
Of the rest I closed and deleted all but one that had already been locked. What should every developer know about legal matters? is off-topic, but I think the top answer is good enough that it should be preserved. (Somewhere... I'm trying to find it a permanent home.)
So anyway, the freelance tag has been burnninated.
