The questions tagged with tools appear to be either related to the 10k-tools, various moderator-tools, hardware tools, tools related to software, or feature-requests that desire a new tool. It's very ambiguous, and it is not immediately apparent to any new poster what it is for.
One thing these questions have in common is that the tools tag is entirely irrelevant to the body of the post, or is covered by the other tags they have. The one case where the tools tag is the only tag present is a case where it could be entirely replaced with technology. (Except this case, but it should honestly be on Stack Apps. I have voted to close it and it is now closed via review.)
Given that it's entirely ambiguous (between 10k tools, moderator tools, newly proposed tools for users, or the tools Stack Exchange use to develop the site), I'm suggesting that this tag be burninated. The tag fails all of the tests described in the When to burninate guidance.
What are your thoughts? Is there a better alternative?
