Eeeeek - what happened to my @ salutation?

I just stumbled upon an intriguing problem. The asker of this question has the username Chris Flynn. In the comments on the question, I tried referring to him with a message like

@Chris good find.

But what was posted was

good find.

Perplexed, I tried a few variations of his name and placement. I came to the conclusion that I couldn't use something that matched /^@Chris/ in the comments, or it would get truncated.

What's up with that?

    You don't need to refer to him with @, since he as the post owner always notified. – slhck Oct 14 '11 at 17:47
