After being in SE for a while and being on numerous communities this is something that has confused me and I can't seem to find an answer. Since there has been some information on update of SE I wanted to see if this will fix or answer this question. If I have a question for the original poster, I can't add a comment to the question, I have to add an answer to the question because I don't have the Reputation numbers to post in comments. Isn't that counter productive? I know I don't have the answer and I am only adding fodder to the answer section with my information seeking comment. Which hence leads to my question.
Will the reputation system be looked at to fix this bug or do you want people that want to someone to an answer not be able to comment unless they ask enough "good" questions? I love SE but this kind of thing has always bothered me.
