I noticed it just now with the comments on this answer (fourth comment down, addressed to @Stian and @AnthonyPegram on

You can explicitly notify one (1) other commenter or editor, by using @name, where name is the username with all spaces removed.
There used to be a dialog that informed us that we couldn't do this, which leads to the following questions:
- Are multiple notifications allowed again? If not, then
- Was the error dialog removed? If so, then
- Doesn't this give the user a false impression that their notification will be delivered?
Additionally, the rule is still enforced in meta:
It seems that the behavior is enforced again.
So what happened, was it a blip in the system?
