Why is the comment area for typing text so small ? Often I find myself squinting as I type a comment. Can it be increased in size, to at least the size of the max amount of comment characters ? Note, I just find this problematic when trying to scroll comment box, especially when attempting to check the readability of a comment prior to posting. Might be nice if there was a preview feature as a comment was typed....

Sounds like your comment are too long ;) – Oded Apr 18 '12 at 16:02
In my browser (FF) I can re-size the comment box downwards, but not sideways. – vascowhite Apr 18 '12 at 16:02
@vasco got lost I did'nt notice that option, thanks – blue-sky Apr 18 '12 at 16:05

Too small you say? I agree! That's why, when I'm planning on writing a larger comment, I'll use some of the popular browsers' (Chrome/Firefox AFAIK) textarea resizing functionality. Just grab onto it and pull!

It's not a solution, it's not denying your feature request - it's just a workaround :)
