During standup @DLynch mentioned he had some questions about hiding generic discussions change tag. We expect those questions to go on T242184

See:

I did some research into hiding tags: it hides the tag entirely if the associated message is present-but-disabled. (If there's no message at all, it just shows whatever the tag name is.) Messages are disabled by setting them to literally the empty-string or to -.

This can be done either by default, by setting the bundled translation in the extension to - (and by including {{ignored}} in the translation-description as a convention, it seems), or by per-wiki setting the contents of the special page for the translation (in this case MediaWiki:Tag-discussiontools).

The open question for @ppelberg would be: should this be hidden by default?
