Yes you did:


For info, to see who you've commented on the changesets of, go to "My 
Edits", click on a changeset, click on "changeset xml" at the bottom of 
the screen, note the "uid" that appears, and create a URL like 
that includes that "uid".

Similarly, to see who has commented on a user's changesets use a URL 
like http://resultmaps.neis-one.org/osm-discussion-comments?uid=61942 .

They've now specifically been asked about that in 
https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/111016252 , so they do now 
definitely know that it is an issue.  Sometimes it might also help to 
mention https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Good_changeset_comments to 
explain things a bit more.
