Not reliable, it hasn't worked me for the past month or two.

I had been thinking it might have been relying on the old hnsearch API which stopped getting data. But from searching my email, I see that it worked twice a couple of days ago, but not at all for several weeks before then or since then.

As a side note, it's been working for me during that time.

I got a notification for your comment, but not for the sibling comment by jaredsohn.

Yes but as jaredsohn had also replied to my comment directly, I had expected to receive a notification for their reply as well.
