I have a hashtag called #Announcement defined with attributes: Special, Locked

What happened was the following:
- You sent the message from a non-moderator account, without that hashtag. It required approved because your group is restricted.
- When you approved the message, you added the #Announcement tag.
- But because the message was originally sent from a non-moderator account, we ignored the special flag when the message was approved.
I have changed the policy so that if a message has been approved, we allow the use of mod-only and special hashtags, even if the message was originally sent from a non-moderator. I think this probably makes the most sense in a 'principle of least surprise' kind of way, but I'm happy to consider rolling it back if the group disagrees.
