 Preliminarily, I think it's unwise to make the change suggested by r-a-y
 in 2372.01.patch. If we're going to store the full content of blog
 comments, then we should by the same logic store the full content of blog
 posts and content types that we currently excerpt for activity (like forum
 posts). But this will grow our activity table in big ways, which will add
 to the already painfully slow @-mention queries; see #4018. Moreover,
 storing full content will cause backward compatibility problems for
 plugins/themes that are currently displaying the full 'content' field of
 activity items.

 A proper solution would be to store @-mention details as some sort of
 structured metadata (perhaps in activitymeta? perhaps as its own
 datatype?), to run the full content of the source content through a filter
 that detects and records @-mentions based on that full content, and _then_
 to create and store an excerpt. But this is beyond what we can do for 1.8.
