Is it possible to refer to a user in a comment/answer, such that he gets a notification?

(something like annotating "@user" in StackOverflow comment)

Currently, it's not part of Q2A. But it's something I'll be considering when I (finally) implement notifications in v1.8.

In the meantime there are various notification plugins that may solve the problem - check here for some of them.
