One of my questions was edited this morning with the note:
Replaced the ambiguous "hooks" tag with the more general "tools".
In my opinion tools is utterly too broad and will apply to way too many different pieces of equipment. No one can specialize in "tools" because it could include anything from knitting needles/crochet hooks to paint brushes to saws.
This tag is un-useful.
Am I missing value in a generic "tools" tag that would make it worthy to keep?
The only tool-related tag I could think of being useful is perhaps tool-identification if someone has a mystery tool in their box of equipment they need help figuring out what purpose it serves.
What are the community's thoughts on the tools tag?
While we may not have enough evidence yet to outright blacklist it, should it generally be understood as a poor choice for tagging?
