They must have put that in place before the TFS checkin policy on changeset comments.
This is one of the Snarkies based on a real life incident. What confuses me is that you'd want to prevent people from putting the word "Hack" in a checkin comment. Then they're just going to make a hack and hide it under a less obvious name, like "Date modification requested by business in under one hour". We did a similar Snarky around TODO and HACK before. This is just another facet of the same bit of humor.
By the way, if you've never heard about Hackety Hack before, it's an IDE for teaching kids how to code. It's related to Shoes, which I've played with before teaching my daughter how to code.
"The two largest similar projects are Scratch and Alice. There are two major differences: Both of these projects use a graphical programming language based on the concept of "blocks," but Hackety Hack teaches Ruby. Both Scratch and Alice are university projects out of MIT and CMU, respectively, and Hackety Hack has no university affiliation."

Snarky: Whose changeset has the checkin comment "Hackity Hack Hack"?
