    pound or hash ending a URL

    Why do a rather significant number of URLs lately end in "#" or "/#"? The hash mark or pound sign is supposed to be a fragment identifier but these URLs have nothing after it. Sometimes I look and the URL appears to point to elsewhere on the same page. The language and the software are, I assume, irrelevant. Is this shorthand for there being only one fragment on a page? And the slash announces a directory, so, after a slash, a hash alone is more puzzling. What's the purpose of either form?
