Over in This Thread I posted a response that really should have been a comment. However I don't see the option to add a comment to the question. In fact the only place I have the ability to add comments is to my own posts.

Am I missing something obvious here? Feel free to slap me if I've made an obvious user error ;)

You need 50 reputation to comment on other peoples posts.

Check out the FAQ for what various levels of reputation will allow you to do.

  • \$\begingroup\$ In that case I would suggest that restricting comments is detrimental to the clarity of the thread and should be a base function. But thanks, I hadn't realised that ;) \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @Jagged - I agree that it is frustrating. I assume that it slows down spammers some so I do see the utility. Fortunately, it will only affect you once on all stackexchange sites total. Assuming you link your logins together you'll start with +100 rep on the second site. \$\endgroup\$
