Aside from the fact that the getting started tag is applied to low quality or not constructive questions, it's important to note that the Getting Started tag is at its core a meta tag.
The Best practices tag is another example of a Meta tag that has been placed on the chopping block. Like the Getting Started tag, it tells me nothing about whether or not it's something I'm interested in or something I can help with.
In other words, to gauge the topic of the question, I still have to actually view the question. Tags should help us quickly identify questions we have an interest in while also helping us avoid the ones that have no value to us personally.
Tags, like everything else on Stack Overflow, should be devoid of distraction and clutter, and this means that any tags that don't specifically identify the question subject-matter should be banned, blacklisted, and escorted off our network.
