There's a lot of unused potential in hashtags on #mastodon.

We use content warnings but they're broken because you never know what content others want to see. Instead we should have automatic content folding in clients based on hashtag, eg #nsfw, #assault or bitcoin.

Similarly there's confusion about what content it's ok to boost and it would be great if clients honoured hashtags like #noboost both in toots and user bios automatically.

We have a chance to use technology better.
