Somehow, not noticing I was reading the meta site or even reading the question properly, I mistakenly posted an answer to the wrong question:
The OP is asking a question about (is a question appropriate to ask on the main site). You've posted an answer to that secondary question (the theoretical main site post), but not the top most question being asked about (the "is it appropriate" meta post). – 1201ProgramAlarm 2 hours ago
@1201ProgramAlarm. D'oh! Yes, I occasionally forget which half of the site I'm looking at. Thanks. – Ray Butterworth 1 min ago
What I'm wondering is, now that I've deleted the answer, will @1201ProgramAlarm know that I replied to the comment?
(Note that I'm asking about the general case, not about this specific example of question, answer, comment, or @user.)
