Hello, I'm writing in reference to your Meta Stack Overflow account: http://meta.stackoverflow....
Yeah.. that excerpt is not very helpful for mod messages (replies are a different thing). What about removing the introduction part from the excerpt that's shown in the top bar? Since it's almost always the same it's easy to detect and to remove.
Actually I'd even go one step further and detect message templates that have not been modified and in that case only show the name of the template.
