    Since hiring an outside problem-solver to work with our databases and reducing the number of plug-ins, we'd had dramatically better performance: we'd been seeing an outage a day, admittedly often at 1:00 a.m., and now we're seeing barely one a month.

    you can click quote if it is that important to show what the original author said. Otherwise using what @JohnChisum said will notify the person on the other side of the @ that they have been "mentioned". Settings preference whether you get email or an on-screen notification or both can be modified in edit profile edit preferences.
