Can we get rid of the threshold of 15 chars for comments?
There's a 15 character limit for all comments. A lot of times people have a short comment, and follow it with something like: " (this is to satisfy minimum char limit)". But the limit doesn't really do anything, as you can also fill in the void with spaces, which are then not visible when the comments are rendered (ie: 'foo bar ' will be rendered as 'foo bar').
Why have a minimum limit if it acts as a thorn-in-the-side more often than not, and can be easily bypassed?
