Just repeatedly tried to add a comment which references two @users. The usual message box pops up saying only one will be notified but as of today, the comment is not posted. If I remove one of the @users it is accepted and posted.

  • only I don't think "off topic" is quite right ...

  • I'm inclined to agree. Oct 4 '11 at 22:00

This is status by design

Please change comment notification to notify multiple people

And for a lot more information see this post on meta.stackoverflow.com

How do comment @replies work?

  • That only 1 user gets notified, I get. But why is the posting of the comment blocked? Oct 4 '11 at 21:45
  • That's just what they chose to do. I would have to defer to the SE team for why they chose to do it that way. I think they block it to prevent a false sense of security, thinking that two would get notified because two are mentioned.
