Restrain abuses by canceling referencing when a post contains more than *n* tags

G Globulle Public Seen by 62

Some posts contain an amazing list of tags. As such, they appear in the stream of many users without relevant content. Here is an example, but I am pretty sure you all know what I am talking about.

I propose we convene on a limit which seems reasonable (let's say 50 for example). When one is posting a message which contain more tags than this limit, a warning should say "You're using too many tags, their referencing will be canceled" and then the tags could appear as normal text.

I think this is not really a limitation, rather a guide to keep tags from losing their initial purpose: to help find relevant content.

I can agree with it. But what if person A has removed that barrier from his instance and takes on? Then the recipient should also (in my view) ignore them and issue a warning message that some posts has been ignored due to abusive tags usage.

Yes, this seems good to me. But I must admit I am not really aware of the technical complexity of such a thing...
