Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 this was fixed.
Somehow people still do it.
I just wonder, how?

One hour to go! – random Nov 7 '09 at 7:28
    
One hour until what? – Bob's sock puppet Nov 7 '09 at 7:42

Actually I find it annoying, because sometimes I really DO have a concise comment, but am forced to pad it with non-essential junk just to meet the length requirements.

I know this was fixed.

"Fixed?" It was never broken!

It was only changed to prevent the non-stop "bug" submissions. If one is crafty enough to get around the limitations, then one is usually are smart enough to write a concise comment.

IMHO it's something we should be allowed to do after gaining a certain amount of rep (like the requests to lift the once-every-5-seconds vote limitation). – Ether Nov 9 '09 at 18:30

The bug is not gone, people...

It stays among us...

Observe...
