I'm new here and wanted to help someone on StackOverflow.
The fact I have a low reputation because I'm new, I can't comment on a user's question... yet.
I tried to help someone but had to put it in the "answer" box because it was the only way available to me. That caused a "-1" that was explained to me because by "it was not an answer". As I think of it, the person was right and it seems fair.
My questions is: why can't we comment on a user's question when we have a low reputation but we CAN answer ? I'd like to understand the logic behind it before stating that it should be allowed. :-)
