      Description

      When someone @-mentions someone in their PR description, it triggers spam e-mails in GitHub's system to all the mentioned people each time someone synchronizes their fork. For example, this commit triggered an e-mail to me

      https://github.com/bkietz/arrow/commit/b2fa55db273d44b14814d45dae8525b065e01a91

      It would be fairly each to sanitize @-mentions to simply strip the @-symbol, with the right regular expression of course (since the characters after the @ symbol can include hyphens or underscores, but otherwise any ASCII alphanumeric character)
