Sign. It probably won't happen though. When users see that notification, I would venture a guess and say that 2/3 times they go and respond. This boosts the sites post count, thus boosting the metrics they show advertisers to let them know how many people use the site. If this gets enable, many will get rid of the notifications, thus diminishing the metrics of the site, in turn making the site less profitable. I could be talking out of my ass though.

Did you read my topic like at all? Of course that wasn't said in a mean way.

I seen people who hate when I mention them to a thread even though I see it as a feature you know when you were replied too.

I mean the @name

Edit: and that was a real person on the board.

Plus people abuse it to annoy people so you can now set it so they can't do it that way.
Ile like to appologise for my past only in 2016 I started to be semi serious.

Thanks Bacon, I for one really appreciate this.
