UPDATE Sterling work by @Rubén and there are at present no Qs with this tag - issue is 'moot'.


Tag lacks a Usage guide, has 3 followers and is currently applied to 14 6 Open questions:

Q: Can't “see” Gmail's “new look”?
Q: How do I disable zoom effect when hovering mouse over thumbnails in Google Image Search?
Q: How to add user to an existing post in Google Plus?
Q: How to Change “me” in Gmail

Q: Move a Facebook chat window horizontally
Q: Quickly navigating to a date in Google Calendar
Q: Shortcut for clearing a column on Tweetdeck
Q: Turn off smooth scrolling in Slack
Q: Weird date display on Windows Live Calendar task view

Regarding Shog9’s criteria for burnination, summarised as:

  - Does it describe the contents of the questions to which it is applied?
  - Is it unambiguous?
  - Is the concept described even on-topic for the site?
  - Does the tag add any meaningful information to the post?
  - Does it mean the same thing in all common contexts?

IMO the As are, in order: No, No, Yes, No, No.

It is a topic with experts (eg see the SE site: User Experience) but it appears current usage here has little connection with that site. Oxford Living Dictionaries has this definition:

The degree to which something is able or fit to be used.

which seems to imply a degree of subjectivity and hence potential conflict with the primarily opinion-based close reason.

Would anyone care to speak in its defence in a trial for its life?

Notes:

I'm pretty sure that there will not be arguments to keep and considering the ale's comment made four days ago (Kill it with fire), I removed the tag from the last questions that still had it.
