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.

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

You can tag only one person in comments with @. More about how comments work in How do comment @replies work?
