Not sure if anyone else runs into this, but I occasionally am unable to ping people in comments if I use the mobile app or Safari. When I include @username at the beginning of a comment, it gets deleted when I actually try to post it.

I realize the mobile app is probably never going to be fixed, but I was curious if others have seen this with Safari and if so whether it can be fixed.

Note that pinging may be deleted automatically if system considers it unnecessary; see How do comment replies work? For example, here is my screenshot of Safari on MacOS Sierra:

I tried to ping you here, but upon publishing the ping has gone:

This is an OS- and browser-independent intended behavior. As for mobile app, it hasn't been updated for years and probably shouldn't be used.
