I thing the tag alternatives is now losing focus, now that we have established that currencies so different from Bitcoin such as Ripple are IT.
We should either define precisely what is that tag about, or abolish it.
I hope nobody expects to tag that way all non-bitcoin questions, because it would be inconsistent with the enlarged scope of this site.
edit: either I get some answer to this question, or I'll consider going on and manually removing it one by one...
edit: deleted them again. Stack is failing. Either stop re-adding it, or answer here! It would be better if the mods just banned the tag, of course. Fuck, it was just linking me to "unanswered", but there's a ton more. I have better things to do than manually removing something that should have been done automatically by a mod, I give up, ignore reality and reason and keep it.
