It looks like the tag is attracting more noise than signal. It also tricked the OP of this thread into thinking that his question was appropriate (based on his comment)

Should it stay?

Thanks, @Michael! :) –  Adam Rackis Feb 27 '12 at 22:37
    
There are 53 open [freelance] questions. I voted to close 51. The other two seemed salvageable, so I edited them instead. –  Pops Feb 27 '12 at 22:48
    
@Popular - there are a lot fewer now ... –  Adam Rackis Feb 27 '12 at 23:00
    
@PopularDemand Thanks. I agree, those two looked worth salvaging. –  Bill the Lizard Feb 27 '12 at 23:55

Wow, what a mess. Most of the questions tagged 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 tag has been burnninated.
