Eeeeek - what happened to my @ salutation?

It happened to me twice already that I forgot to put an @author in my comment to notify the answerer of my comment. When I edit my comment to put the@author in front of my comment and pushed the "Save Edit" button, the @author didn't appear. When I changed something else in my comment and put the @author in front, it works.


The @usernmame notification is removed if the comment is directed at the owner of the post being commented on as this person always gets notifications of comments.

So for example if I were to add a comment on your question starting with @Torsten it would be redundant as you would be notified by default.

If you want to make it clear that you are addressing the author of the post just remove the @.
