Say Whom People Are Replying to in Notification E-mails...
Short, concise description of the idea
Is there a reason I'm not thinking of that the ominous "somebody" is in our e-mails instead of a person's user name?
Full description of the idea
Currently, notification e-mails say, "CANHAZGOTHGIRL replied to another comment somebody left in your LiveJournal post". I think it should say "CANHAZGOTHGIRL replied to a comment JEJUNE01 left in your LiveJournal post".
This is especailly helpful as the journal entry get older. In the case of a response to an anonymous comment, "somebody" is perfectly fine. And for your comments, it could simply say "you". (And that might be where the issues come in.)
If this causes people to freak out for whatever reason, how about at least putting their name before the quoted portion of the journal entry? It would then look something like this:

Their reply was:
We'll see what we can do!
- Makes it clearer whom the person is replying to when reading several notification e-mails
- There may be a reason why this was not already implemented, or perhaps it would actually cause confusion. Let's discuss.
