It revolves around the Hashtag Permissions setting in Message Policies. In the pick-list, there is an entry stating that "Messages from members can only be tagged with existing hashtags, otherwise the message is bounced." But it seems that what actually happens is that the message gets held in moderation. At that point the Moderator can of course reject the message, or replace the offending hashtag with an approved one. If the message is approved without change to the hashtag, the hashtag is added to the hashtag list.

The message should be held in pending form for the original sender, not the moderator. And they should get an email telling them to edit the message. This only applies to messages sent via email, as if you try to post a message from the website with a new hashtag, it'll give you an error message right then.

So, yeah, using the word Bounced is not accurate. Suggestions appreciated.

Thanks,
Mark
