How do comments work?

I know it is a repetitive question, but I couldn't find the solution.

I can't leave a comment on any posts/questions on Stack Overflow, but I can leave a comment on Meta Stack Overflow.

Why I'm limited? –  Behzad Sep 9 '12 at 23:41
@Behzad because you don't have 50 reputation. It is to prevent spam –  Richard J. Ross III Sep 9 '12 at 23:45
thanks Mystical and Richard. Why I could leave a comment before but now not? –  Behzad Sep 9 '12 at 23:46
@Behzad: Read the linked post. You can always comment on your own questions (and answers to them), just not on those of others. –  David Robinson Sep 10 '12 at 3:17

They are different sites, with different privilege levels, and your rep on them is independent. On meta you need 1 rep to comment on any post and you have 1 rep so you're good. On stackoverflow you need 1 rep to comment on posts in your questions, but you need 50 rep to comment on posts of someone else's questions and you have 37, so you're almost there.

I could comment some month ago! those days I had fewer rep than now! –  Behzad Sep 9 '12 at 23:50
you can comment on your own questions and answers regardless of your rep. Perhaps in the past you were commenting on your own posts. –  Kate Gregory Sep 9 '12 at 23:51
