yeah, it's a kind of keyword if you instantly want to find a thread, the hashtagged ones show up on the top of the search. You don't have to tag your posts.

@cecile - I don't think I am allergic, but I was washing my hair with baking soda trying to get the dye out (I dyed my hair and it looks really black and I hate it) and that's when I broke out in hives so maybe it was some kind of allergic reaction, or just stress... I'm oversensitive....
