Whenever someone comments on a blog post I've written, I want to reply to him as a comment. However, I'm sure that most of the time that person doesn't see my reply, because he's only subscribed to my post feed, not my comment feed (which makes sense - he's not interested in all comments that are posted to my blog).

Is there a way to help commentators be notified when someone replies to them in another comment?

There are plugins that add option to subscribe to comments via email.

I use Subscribe to Comments at my blog and it works fine for me and readers, but it is very old and promised update seems totally stuck so I suggest to look for something more maintained.
