dang / sctb: do you get alerts when we mention your usernames? You always seem to respond relatively quickly.

I wouldn't be surprised if they got a continuous feed of all comments. The volume is just about possible to keep up with.

There exists a public feed of all comments (just click on 'comments' in top bar), but we don't monitor the site that way. It's too much. We basically read the threads like anyone else, plus rely on moderation lists, such as what has been flagged by users.

No, we don't. I used to have client-side software that would highlight specific regexes in comment text, but it stopped working one of the times that we rewrote the client-side Lisp that we used (Parenscript -> Lumen -> Arc) and I haven't gotten around to getting it working again.
