The above question is closed as , but I can't find the reason anywhere.

I am not requesting this feature. I simply would like to know what the rationale is behind providing this feature for answers, but not comments.

Given that this is implemented for answers, and the general consensus seems to be that the feature would be beneficial to SO, I am left wondering: why was this declined?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

That question has a lot of viable answers. There is no need to post a duplicate. – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Sep 15 '11 at 22:04
Maybe you didn't notice, but the top three (highly upvoted) answers are in complete support of the feature and provide good reason. The other two merely suggest it was of low priority, and it didn't seem to me that they were authoritative or in any way related to the status-declined. – robjb Sep 16 '11 at 3:58

They just don't think comments rate the amount of support as answers.

It's just not important enough to prioritize.
