# How to Comment: why does the linked name sometimes appear, but not always? [duplicate]

I've noticed that when I make a comment with "@user blah blah yada yada" it sometimes appears as "blah blah yada yada" whereas other times it appears as "@user blah blah yada yada".

Perhaps I'm doing something wrong in how I point my comment to an intended user?

How should I formulate the comment so that the intended user sees the comment in their "responses" tab?
