Would it be considered gauche to use hashtags on here? Are they even supported?
Yeah I wonder if anyone really uses the search on here. That's the only use for hashtags I can think of.
They're very _Diaspora_. Which is fine by me. I can see its use, but it's not very lean. It makes every posting look like a tag cloud. I like the simplicity of Sublevel. It's minimalistic.
When used properly, hashtags can be awesome but they are often abused, so I understand your (and other's) dislike of them.
