    $\begingroup$ We also have best-practices and rule-of-thumb (and even expertise, which was used only once!). Since the purpose of this site is to provide guidance, expert opinion and thoughful recommendations, I don't see any interest in keeping the recommendations tag alive. $\endgroup$ – chl Aug 4 '13 at 18:41

    $\begingroup$ +1. I don't think "recommendations" evokes the idea of "recommender-system" at all. The first is just an ordinary English word, while the second does now have a precise technical meaning. $\endgroup$ – Nick Cox Aug 4 '13 at 22:12
  • $\begingroup$ @chl, would you mind posting your comment as an answer? (I think you made a good point, and you already have 3 comment-upvotes + another comment supporting your point of view). $\endgroup$ – Andre Silva Aug 5 '13 at 0:05

[Based on my comment.]
We also have and (and even , which was used only once!). Since the purpose of this site is to provide guidance, expert opinion and thoughful recommendations, I don't see any interest in keeping the tag alive.

As @Nick pointed out, there is no connexion between 'recommendations' and 'recommender system'. I would suggest killing the tag, and cleaning up the aforementioned threads.

Edit (6 Sep.)
I've removed the tag from the remaining threads. It can safely be blacklisted now.

  • $\begingroup$ Is it possible to burninate the tag, and then, blacklist it? This would decrease the necessity of retags, and would avoid it to be used again. If it helps, just let me know after some action is taken on the tag (remove,burninate,blacklist) and I volunteer to retag the above threads (maximum of 2 retags per day). Thanks once more. $\endgroup$ – Andre Silva Aug 5 '13 at 16:51
