Turn off hash tags

Is there any way to turn off hash tags? When I write something like " #5 in the country" in my comments it always changes it to a hash tag when I don't want it.

    Adding $Configuration['Garden']['Format']['Hashtags'] = false; to your /conf/config.php should stop formatting completely.
    If you still want hashtags, but only want to surpress that formatting from time to time, put a backslash before the whateveryoucallthatsign "\#5 in the country" => "#5 in the country"
