#5560: Blog Comment Sync Activity removes Filter and Click-through functionality
 Reporter:  mrjarbenne    |      Owner:
     Type:  defect (bug)  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal        |  Milestone:  Awaiting Review
Component:  Core          |    Version:  2.0
 Severity:  normal        |   Keywords:
 In BP 2.0, comments left on the post update on the activity feed, for a
 network blog, now populate the comment area of the blog (awesome).

 With that functionality turned on, comments left on the blog, now show up
 as a new "Activity Comment" in the activity stream, rather than a
 "(username) commented on the post (postURL)".

 This means that there is no longer a way to directly get to that comment
 on the blog, because the "activity comment" line doesn't contain the URL
 link back the network blog. When you click the "view conversation" button,
 you are taken to the conversation, and can then go to the blog via the
 conversation view "header", but this adds an additional click if I want to
 go right to the blog, from a comment in the activity feed.

 Additionally, those Activity Comments don't get filtered when you select
 "Comments" on the activity feed "Show:" filter. They only appear in the
 stream when you select "Everything", so there is no longer a way to show
 only the comments someone has left on the other blogs in the network.

 Comments left on a blog, whether via the activity stream, or on the blog
 itself, should still populate the activity stream as they would if the
 activity sync was not on, with an "[username] commented on the post
 [posturl] on [siteurl]"
