Allow users to mute @team mentions for org-wide teams
We're finding not all users like to receive @team mention notifications. This is especially annoying when an Org-wide team is created.
The only course of action we have to stop people receiving @team notifications is to completely remove them from the Team. So this is what we're doing.
One-by-one as people request it, we remove user's access to a Team just because they are unable to turn off @team mention notifications. This means the user looses all access to the content in the Team and related services, like files in SharePoint.

Yes, please add the possibility to ignore @team mentions in a specific channel
It should be possible to keep only @name mentions on the channels we want
Not everyone is concerned by @team mention in all channels. People are misusing the @team or @channel so we need a workaround
I also had this issue but recently found that there is an option to mute all @team mentions. In case this helps anyone else, here are the steps:
From the Teams desktop app, click on your profile picture then go to Settings -> Notifications -> Teams and channels -> Custom.
For the "Team mentions" option, select "Off"

Same - please allow opting out of notifications - we have an IT helpdesk that has a Teams team and I get every single notification for every one of our thousand-and-some employees when they have a technical issue. I get that they need help, but since I am not in Helpdesk I don't need to know. Still get the notifications, tho...
This would be great to ignore @team mentions but still be able to receive @user mentions.
Yes please! So annoying
