This question already has an answer here:

Whenever I type a comment to a person X, I begin with @X: so that the person is notified. Lately I have been noticing that on typing @X when the comment is submitted it is often that the @X: part is left out of the display. This leaves me wondering whether the person to whom the comment is intended is notified of it or not.

Why is this happening? Is it a bug?
