The tag description reads

Web app recommendations are OFF-TOPIC on Web Applications Stack Exchange, but might be on-topic for Software Recommendations Stack Exchange if they're sufficiently scoped.

If web apps recommendation are off-topic, why do we have that tag?

There are several sites on the SE network that have tags that state "Do not use" in some form or another.

This is intended to indicate to a (first-time) poster that a question in this subject is likely to be poorly received - or worse. It is simpler to put these tags into the system than to go through the process of getting the tag formally blacklisted.

This technique doesn't always work.

  • I don't think so because there are many questions having that tag and it doesn't cause harm. If you think differently, please edit your question to explain your arguments.
