How do comment @replies work?

I fully expected to find this question already asked after typing it in, so if there is a duplicate somewhere please direct me to it...

I can't seem to tag some people in comments. I would have said that it was only people with spaces in their name, but I was actually able to tag someone with a space in their name just a minute ago.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

See also the usage notes in Tab name completion for comments please! – Arjan Dec 10 '11 at 12:04
Not only can you only notify one person per comment, the @name will be automatically removed if you're trying to notify the only other person in the conversation. – Pops Dec 10 '11 at 16:32

Thanks, I'll have to pay attention to when it happens in the future to see if it's because of one of those rules. – Brandon Moore Dec 10 '11 at 9:05
