I recently noticed the tag. Should that tag exist? It seems to me like it is not very helpful. We could probably tag half or more of our questions with , which suggests that it is overbroad.

Currently, there are 5 questions tagged . I think we could remove the tag from all of them, without any serious loss, and delete the tag.

What do you think?

So let's get rid of . Is a worthwhile tag, or is it still too broad?

I would agree to delete it.

Looking across the questions at crypto.SE, more than half of them touch the communication tag in some way, rendering the tag more general and thereby less useful. Maybe if the type of communication involved would be narrowed down, such a tag could make sense... but there's rarely base to really define the type of communication, so we might as well get rid of the more general communication tag as well.

At least, that's what I think about it.

I did go ahead and removed the tag, replacing it at three points with , as proposed by Gilles.

Thanks for the find.
