Comment (by boonebgorges):

 >  Are @-mentions in blog posts and comments currently dependent on the
 activity component being active?

 Yes. @-mentions in general are dependent on the Activity component.

 The problem with r-a-y's patch is not that it'll have any ill effects when
 activity is *disabled* (in which case it'll in fact have no effect at
 all), but instead when activity is *enabled*. We currently store only
 short excerpts of blog posts in the 'content' column of the activity table
 - only a few hundred characters - but storing the full text of blog posts
 would mean that we're storing many, many times that. This will slow down
 the activity table in a number of important ways. The key issue in this
 case is that @-mention are fetched by a `LIKE` query, and the performance
 of those kinds of queries will degrade at least linearly with the
 increasing size of the haystack.
