How do comments work?

Why can't I add comment on posts in Stackoverflow.com? It seems that whenever I post a question I can add comments, while on other's posts I cannot comment at all. Why is this so?

You don't have enough reputation to post comments on questions other than yours.

The privilege is earned at 50 reputation, so only two/four more upvotes to go!

Oh I see. Even for comments you need reputations! That's good only in a way. Thanks :) – Shill Dec 25 '12 at 13:00
@Shill - Well, it means that spammers can't spam without gaining some reputation first. And it is not a huge hurdle - a couple of good answers and you are good to go. – Oded Dec 25 '12 at 13:01
Thanks guys :) appreciate the prompt answer. – Shill Dec 25 '12 at 13:13
@Shill - Looks like you now do have the reputation needed on Stack Overflow. Enjoy your commenting :) – Oded Dec 25 '12 at 16:01
