50 reputation for making comments is too high

I've joined stack overflow fairly recently, and although I haven't got a chance to give an answer that others haven't give (Though I haven't gone out of my way to find questions).

On several occasions, I've had constructive input that doesn't warrant an answer but would be useful as a comment.

What is the reason for such a high reputation requirement?

50 points is not exactly high. It's easily earned with a few well-placed answers. Or even one good answer, if it comes to that. – Martijn Pieters Dec 19 '12 at 10:48
50 points can be earned by 25 accepted suggested-edits – gnat Dec 19 '12 at 10:57

If you have the ability to earn 50 reputation, you can comment.

This is just to prevent spam and unwanted comments from inexperienced users.

50 rep is high reputation its fairly enough imho. It is to prevent spam.

One or two good answer will get you the needed upvotes.
