The scripting tag is a mess. It covers at least:
- Questions that are about the security of programs that happen to be written in an interpreted language, whether against:
- Questions about automating a security-related task  
Only that last point may warrant a tag. On Unix & Linux, we have a scripting that means that the question is specifically about automating a task as opposed to carrying it out interactively. On U&L, it's mildly useful; given that the determination is somewhat subjective, it's on the edge of being a meta tag. Looking at the questions on this site, I don't think such a tag is warranted here.
Hence I propose to get rid of the scripting tag altogether. Given that it's often being used instead of a proper tag, we can't just burninate it, we need to do some manual retagging (48 questions).
