Yet, when people award tokens to issues I'm subscribed to, the token awards always result in Web notifications on Phabricator. (And it seems we occasionally have seemingly spammy accounts that sometimes award a bunch of tokens all over the place.)

I love them when I see them, but I don't need to click three times to get rid of their notifications.

I'm going to merge this into T10448, which discusses limitations and improvements to the mail tags system. This is an example of a cross-cutting tag ("No Application/System Settings") that isn't handled gracefully by the current system, but correcting this and other similar issues is a goal of future work.
