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 ?
