Anyone else dismayed at the twitterfication of this site lately? Bad enough the callouts, trying to make it more about personalities than the questions, but I'm starting to see more and more hashtags everywhere.
If this site goes full social media style, I might have to find a new site to frequent.
I'm inclined to agree with you. The reason why I like this site if because it's not social media. I needed something to get away from the fakery of Facebook and it's ilk. I don't want to see that crap brought in here.
I like the new mentions feature. It makes it much easier to see if someone replied to a comment you made on their opinion. I don't use hashtags but they don't bother me either. You don't have to click on them.
I like the mentions thing, even though I never use it. But hashtags are just excessive. Especially when people use hashtags in the middle of their sentences, it makes the sentence sound dumb and hard to read. It makes them look like just another dumb person trying to fit in with the crowd.
