Subject Re: Posting message to pool strips tags - Bug?
Date Sun, 03 Jan 2010 16:17:38 GMT
I think tags were filtered because at that time there was a
possibility for tags to escape the private timeline of a certain user
into the tag cloud of users who are not supposed to see this. Looking
at the code right now, I think there's no way for this to happen,
since tags are only extracted from messages which the user has
permissions to see. You could revert the code to the block in the
Empty case.
