Notification of people editing my posts

it can also be pretty helpful i must say or lets say assuring, when you know that something is being tagged, it gives you a good feeling that it’s been taken care of somehow, versus waiting for days not even knowing if someone has seen it.

@sam @codinghorror this looks like a new bug? It seems our twiddling of the handled/unhandled tag should be completely silent to users.
