I don't know about you lot, but I feel I have failed in some way if i've posted several replies across multiple threads, signed in 5-12 hours later and have no notifications. So i propose that perhaps if this happens the system could send you a token notification that says "Well, at least you tried". Or perhaps I'm just an attention whore since the update, though i suspect it's probably that since we have the abilities to reduce our own personal audience and exposure and generally circle jerk with a smaller audience than before bungie.next, it hurts that little bit more when someone doesn't reply to your brilliant analysis of a troll post or a news article that someone has brought to the general attention of the community. All i'm saying is that, if you see a well thought out and interesting reply to a thread that hasn't received the attention you think it should've - reply to it; I suspect that you'll make the author that little bit happier.
eh I'm indifferent about it. Most times it's someone who liked a post of mine or replied back in a nice way even if they disagree. Then I seem to get these crazy nuts attached to my posts that just won't give it up. They seem to want to try and change me in whatever I do or had an opinion on. The notification feels like a hook sometimes since they know you saw the notification it almost becomes an obligation to reply back. Sometimes I just don't care to reply back and get tired of the nonsense. They probably event felt like "yay I won the debate because they stopped responding" when in reality I just got tired of going in circles because the little red notification icon keeps popping up telling me "hey reply back". lol
