Comment (by henry.wright):

 Ah right! {{{make_clickable}}} explains it.

 > Does it cause problems for the excerpt to have tags in it?

 No, not at all technically. Although usability wise it might do. For
 example, when a user is on the inbox screen viewing the list of inbox
 messages, clicking on the excerpt ''usually'' takes them to the message
 thread conversation page where they can read the full message content. If
 the excerpt part of the full message content happens to have a link in it,
 the user could end up on some external website after clicking the excerpt
 link. ''In my opinion'', using {{{make_clickable()}}} on the message
 content is great but not appropriate on the message excerpt.
