Design issue Usernames with One Character Cannot Be Mentioned

This is essentially a design issue and isn't something we plan on changing. We need to do partial matches to try to determine what username you actually typed, so by allowing 1 character matches we are significantly increasing the search space (matching all users that start with A for example). This would be potentially bad for performance.
