Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Comments seem to be formatted against original text in the new top bar inbox:

Should this be tagged as bug? – Iszi Dec 5 '13 at 2:23
Possibly the comment was edited and the inbox isn't picking up on that. (Do you see this edit?) – michaelb958 Dec 5 '13 at 2:23
I'm not sure... Perhaps it's an intended filter for stuff like +1 – bfavaretto Dec 5 '13 at 2:23
@michaelb958 It may have been edited, but I didn't see it. Also, I recent leant the notification system is aware of comment edits (at least when it comes to @pings). – bfavaretto Dec 5 '13 at 2:28
he did edited the comment as I can see a small pen (cil?) besides the time. – Braiam Dec 5 '13 at 2:30
@Braiam I never noticed that pencil before! – bfavaretto Dec 5 '13 at 2:36
@random Now I see it's because it was edited, but I didn't realize that when I posted the question. I thought it was something like the "thank you" filter. – bfavaretto Dec 5 '13 at 2:39

The original text of that comment read,

Also, no no no no no no

That was edited 5 seconds later to prepend the "+1" and lower-case the "A".

Although I kinda like the idea of a filter that would remove "[+-]\d" from the front of comments, nothing like this exists in the system right now. And if it did, it'd act on the actual comments, not just the inbox.
