As in the title, do we really need a tag? What is the utility thereof?

No, we don't need the tag.

  • In my opinion, this is a meta tag which does not inform at all about the topic of the question.
  • You can't be an expert in free.
  • The vast majority of the 24 questions with this tag are closed. This is associated to the fact that questions about 'free' stuff are most of the time off-topic/too broad for this site. (E.g. asking for free resources.)

I think we should remove it and add it to the blacklist.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Why remove the free tag? It could mean free-to-play. \$\endgroup\$ – clickbait Mar 19 '17 at 23:19
  • \$\begingroup\$ @narawagames There is the free-to-play for that purpose :) And as for 'why', the answer answers just that. \$\endgroup\$ – Alexandre Vaillancourt Mar 19 '17 at 23:49
