We're still improving the notifications system on this platform. You can help us out. We're trying to decide the right way to order information in the notifications. Which seems more relevant to you?

---

user1, user2, and user3 replied to your blog post...

--- or ---

On your blog post [dogs are better than cats], there are new replies from user1, user2, and user3

Personally I think that the item being replied to might be more relevant and should therefore come first, but I could be in the minority here. Thoughts?
