I doubt people that actually send emails to the list use #hashtags.
there is that. And looking at the history on the server, most of the existing tags came from the web. But a hashtag is created automatically when using '#' in the email subject. that's how #define was created:
and this email created #hashtags ;-)
I haven't found a way to disable it.. from what I can see we can
1. force every message to have at least one hashtag...
2. bounce message with a new hashtag in $subject
3. remove new hashtag when used in $subject
I think we will need to do some tests to see what #3 does.. But in any case, I don't think we can prevent users from creating hashtags from the web..
Is that causing any issues with patches workflow?
