Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

There are currently 195 questions tagged with . Per the tag wiki:

NewtonSoft is a software label by James Newton-King, author of the JSON.NET object serialization library.

However, all of those questions are not asking anything about the software label, per se, but rather asking about the product: JSON.Net.

Do we still need the tag, or can we merge all of existing questions tagged "newtonsoft" into the tag ?
