I think some people are having anxiety over the loss of the "classic" view, where they could click "reply" to a specific person's post, and it would show up underneath that post (and indented). While that allowed folks to quickly see who replied to whom, it also made a mess when there were a lot of replies (each reply would consequently indent further to the right). I have seen some posts where the replies stretched all the way over to the far right side of the screen!!
Anyway, in this new format, if you just type "@username"
(without the quotes) and then type your reply - that is how many other forums & comment boards do their replies.
In fact, if you highlight & then copy that person's username & then paste it into your response, it will actually "hyperlink" the name for you (you can click it & it will take you to their profile).
For example, if I were to reply to myself by manually typing all or part of my username, I might do something like this:@Hillbilly
- blah, blah, blah...
But, if I were to reply to myself by copying my username, it would look like this:Hillbilly-Hightech
- blah, blah, blah
So, I hope this helps!!!! :-)

Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup... Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend. - Bruce Lee
