Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I know that for commenting on a certain question asked by some other person, one must have a minimum reputation of 50. Recently, while reviewing late answers, I came across a situation where a person without the privilege of writing comments wanted to ask something, and he wrote a comment in the answer section.

My question is what should be done in such a situation. Should he be allowed to ask something in answer, which I don't think should. Or should he wait and gain some reputation before he can post a comment.

He (or she) should wait.

Robots are almost certainly spammers @Mat. I feel no sorrow for my robotist views :-). – ben is uǝq backwards May 9 '13 at 8:07
    
@benisuǝqbackwards Shouldn't that be anti-robotist? – cwallenpoole May 9 '13 at 8:16
