#3899: Support Forums: Prevent overusing mentions

 I'm going to close this as `wontfix` now that autocompletion is in place,
 and that UI makes the original suggestion here invalid (making it harder
 to @mention someone).

 In the event that there becomes a problem with it being overused by
 certain people, we can consider options, but changing the UI to discourage
 @mention's isn't going to fix any problems that exist.

 Finer-grained tickets targeting specific use-cases (ie. Block mentions
 from this user, don't notify if subscribed, etc) seem to be the solution
 here -if actually needed-.
