When doing a comment, should @username-san notify the user that they've been replied to?

Someone recently @AndrewGrimm-san'd me, and I didn't get notified of it.

    I would rather use a space instead of a hyphen to make it work.

    Or you could use a space then a hyphen...I think that might work (@Andrew -san?) Commented Apr 22, 2012 at 0:44

The rules for this are quite complicated. In particular to this case see rules 3 and 9.

From 3: In most (all?) cases including -san will mean that the name is not matched and the user is not notified.

From 9: If the comment was edited to include your name in certain circumstances you might not be notified.
