Notify when someone comments on an entry you have commented on

Notify when someone comments on an entry you have commented on

Short, concise description of the idea
Include a message setting that will nofity the user when someone else has commented on an entry that the user has previously commented on.

Full description of the idea
Oftentimes, someone will post a reply to a comment you made on an entry, except that you will never see it because the post has long since disappeared from your friends page. And unfortunately, you don't subscribe to every single entry that you comment on. This is where this message setting enters the picture. No longer does the user need to keep track of all the entries that he or she made a comment on.

An ordered list of benefits
  • No need to subscribe to every thread that one leaves a comment on.
  • No need to bookmark or save a link to each entry that one left a comment on.
  • No more lost replies.
  • No more need to scroll through pages of friends pages to see if someone left a comment on a post that you commented on as well.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • I see no drawbacks. Since it is an optional setting, the user may turn it on and off as he or she pleases.
