doesn't help characterize the physics content of a question. Sure, there are some questions that deal with (apparent) paradoxes, but I think it's enough that the question title or body mentions the paradox in question; there's no real need to make a tag out of it as well.

Does anyone else see a good use for this tag and would care to argue for keeping it? Or should we get rid of it?

    $\begingroup$ Agreed. Right now [paradox] seems to mean "I'm lost on something basic". $\endgroup$ Dec 17, 2011 at 20:45

Kill it with fire. Definitely.

  • $\begingroup$ Since there are only a few questions with the tag I've been removing it from them a few at a time. The opinion of mods is that it's not worth getting the devs involved for such a small tag. Let's just say that any time you see a paradox tag in the future, just edit it out. (If it becomes a problem, I think we can have it blacklisted) $\endgroup$
