 It works this way because of a quirk in the design of @mentions. Strictly
 speaking, @mentions are a property of activity items. As such, they're
 only triggered by the content of an activity item. In the case of a blog
 post, the content of the activity item consists of the first few words of
 the blog post. So @mentions that appear in this first sentence or so of
 the blog post should trigger notifications.

 Unfortunately, a better system would require a major rethink of the way
 @mentions work - we'd have to separate them from the activity component,
 or create a separate index of them, or start storing fulltext in the
 activity table, or any number of these options at the same time. I do
 think that this is something we should think about, but unfortunately it
 won't be for this dev cycle.
