> This morning I was contacted by someone using my plugin, Media-Tags.
> The reported issues is the shortcode I'm providing via the plugin 
> [media-tags] is somehow being hijacked by another plugin, wordTube. 
> So I downloaded this wordTube plugin. And found where is registers a
> shortcode [media]. And was able to confirm when I add my plugin's 
> shortcode [media-tags] to a Page it will somehow be passed to the 
> wordTube plugin instead of my Media-Tags plugin. 
> So my question is should I instead be using [mediatags] or 
> [media_tags] instead of [media-tags]? Is there something in the 
> regex pattern matching where the dash is effecting the logic? Anyone?
