I was looking at THIS POST and the first comment to the question caught my eye. The user who made it seems to have 1 reputation. The comments help page says that you need 50 reputation to be able to comment on other user's post. How was this user able to post that comment?


That user submitted the comment as an answer. It was flagged as not being an answer so I converted it to a comment on the question itself.
