The use of a hashtag’s unsound
There’s a quick way around it I’ve found
Type an alternate sign
As I do in mine
What is it? I’ll gladly e# pound

I've naught used the hashtag  since I quit playing tic tac toe and using them tends to make me cross. ( Joseph, how did I do?)

Subject: [puny] Quick Update Re: Topic Lines #administrivia

I've made a tiny change to the system to prevent possible confusion when it comes to hashtags (I know, I know, enough with the hashtags already - you're right, I'm almost done). I've flipped the switch that will keep you from accidentally using anything but a pre-defined hashtag in your message topic line. In other words, you can't accidentally post the following:

Rogue Riddle #998 #RogueRiddle

What will happen is that the message will get bounced back to you. If that happens, remove the erroneous # sign from in front of the 998 and resend your message.

Thanks for putting up with all of this. I promise it will all be easier as time goes by. Here's looking at you, kid!
