Re: Wire Posts in bp 1.2
Your post is so good its scary. It makes no sense to me to use a Twitterism of jumbling together meta data with post content. People do this on Twitter because they have no choice.
It works for Twitter, but they must be parsing out all of these tags and storing the relationships between the “embedded” meta tags and the “parent” post somewhere else for searching and whatever else.
This is a very dangerous direction to take. The core developers should tread very carefully.
I think rvenable’s solution is genious and satisfies all parties.
