I recently looked at the underhanded tag and noticed that all 3 of the newest questions are closed as "Too Broad". From our new rules for popularity contests and the code-trolling tag being off-topic it would seem that underhanded may also be off topic. What is the community opinion on the underhanded tag?
Note that underhanded is not a winning criterion, unlike popularity-contest; it's more like math in that it's a specification of the content of the challenge. Underhanded challenges can be code golfs or popularity contests or whatever. I don't think the issue is that it's difficult to find a objective winning criteria for them.
I've actually been meaning to bring this up. I think the real issue with underhanded is that it's a poorly disguised attempt at keeping code-trolling around after code trolling challenges became off topic. Underhanded challenges don't provide quality content to the site. In fact, I think they perpetuate others' negative opinions of the type of code we write on this site, and they perpetuate the image that we're a "joke site." There are only so many times we can have the same challenge of "do X but make it look like you're doing Y, lol sneaky sneaky" anyway.
With that in mind, I'd like to propose that underhanded be retired in the same way that code-trolling was, with existing challenges being closed as off topic and locked for historical significance, and future challenges of that type being made unwelcome.
