 Replying to [comment:3 DJPaul]:
 > Are you saying there's a bug where, after WP truncates a Post, we take
 that truncated text and then add that into the Activity stream, instead of
 taking the original post content, and running our own truncation methods
 on it?

 No not a bug, but as we take the post content after WP has run it's
 filters we then don't run our function fully, iirc we should in theory be
 rendering a link rather than WP's [...] the first post attempts to
 describe our function actions, it just felt odd that if I adjusted the
 excerpt length via BP filter then the already truncated WP content was
 returned from BP create excerpt and had a read more link appended - this
 is not a good description and I'm not being very clear :) something isn't
 logically quite correct but it's not necessarily a bug. As this isn't
 something any one else has raised apart from that one forum post it should
 be set to close, unless I can really sit down and examine in detail.
