I've noticed something similar on StickyMail notifications: sometimes I get the email, sometimes I don't. For a while it looked as if notifications only came through if the message originated with a moderator. If this is accurate, it may point to where exactly one might want to investigate.
Woo hoo, really? On all other forums I can think of, it's impossible to "follow" threads because you're then inundated with mountains of email when all you want is a flag when you actually go to the forum. Nice!
I see lucy24's point of view but it would be nice to have the option to be notified of new replies on a thread. There are many topics I am interested in but may not have anything to add at the moment. I think you would get more people coming back to the forums if they did get reply notifications on threads they follow instead of having to remember to come to check the thread for any new replies.
I am not getting notifications for a thread I started yesterday, "Search Engine Spider and User Agent Identification". All other notifications seem to be working fine though. So not sure if the problem is localized to that forum or to starting a new thread.

you don't automatically get notifications for threads you have started - you must check the "Email notification of new replies" box to get these. i edited your OP in that thread to turn on notifications - lmk if it doesn't work.
