 With the increased use of custom post types when using BP, getting all the
 bits and pieces of integration for proper activity stream recording into
 place takes a bit of work.

 One of the several issues that site builders struggle with is getting CPTs
 and their related data displaying nicely (and relevantly) in the activity

 I know there is ongoing work on the CPT themselves, but the comments is
 another aspect.

 How about changing the text "%1$s commented on the post, %2$s" in bp-blogs
 /bp-blogs-activity.php to something simpler and more agnostic such as
 "%1$s comment on %2$s".

 This is a very clean and simple change, but opens up a variety of
 possibilities when it comes to deeply integrating CPTs into the activity
 stream. By removing two word, a situation is created where site devs can
 avoid having to write several lines of code to customize the text string
 when recording to the activity stream.
