Basically, what I'm wondering is, if many people have replied to a thread, is it possible to "mention" or respond to them (some forums have something like an @username system for this) in a way that they will be individually notified of?

Just for the sake of efficiency, I'd be nice to be able to reply to several people by making one post rather than many posts quoting their responses.

Does this make any sense?  Frustratingly, I can't think of a better way to articulate what I'm asking.  For an example, a post like this:

User1: (response)

User 2: (response)
...
etc.

so that users 1 and 2 will see that I've 'mentioned' them?

"The transsexual experience, while a major survival issue, is not the central identity-defining factor in our lives, even though it is seen as what makes us different from other people. Despite its magnitude and intensity, it is, in the long run, merely a preliminary step to getting on with our lives."

Let's find out, I know there is a "Mentions" feature.

Oh, I see!  It is the '@' system then.  Thanks.   :)
