    I haven't seen any evidence @Tim. Absolutely no one has come to give me cookies... Do you know where they are? Commented Feb 13, 2013 at 13:11
  • I've gone through all the open ones and voted to close all save 2. They were on-topic just mistagged. One point people closing: Not all are off-topic, some are just old not constructive etc... Commented Feb 13, 2013 at 13:16
  • I went through a bunch of them too. Note, some of the questions revolving around an OSI approved license are in the on topic realm, e.g. 'can I mix this code with this code' and the like. I think I caught the rest that were just tagged incorrectly.

    I think we need a place to send the valid ones first. The ones with up-votes about the EU cookie law all seem to be valid. They just don't need the tag.

Why not setting it as a synonym of ?

  • Right. There're stuff about software licensing and a lot of off-topic as well. Perhaps it opens a door to non constructive, debate-like questions. But for those who don't ("how will my program's license interact with this or that"), what should OP use?

    I'd be all for burninating that one too. Anyone who takes legal advice from anonymous strangers on the internet is a fool, and we shouldn't be encouraging them to ask.
