Somebody asks question, I reply, they post comment on my reply. I don't get notification about their comment. Is that normal or is it bug?

SO doesn't send email notifications for comments, period. You will have the notification icon (next to your name in the banner) light up if they comment on your question/answer or respond to a comment you made using your name in the "Twitter-style", @Rubycut.


As for E-Mail notification: That doesn't exist on SO (except for the negligeable daily thingie).

As for notifications not even turning up in the envelope: Sadly, that's by design. If it's not your question or answer the comment is made in, it will take a @Rubycut for the message to reach you.
