How can I comment on the post that I've asked as guest?

There is a cookie based system that tries to keep "guest" visits hooked together, but it is perforce fragile. Once that breaks you'll have to do as Grace Note suggests. –  dmckee Dec 4 '10 at 17:51

If you can provide proof of ownership of the guest account, send an email to team@stackoverflow.com detailing your plight. They can then merge the account with yours, which gives you ownership of the post and thus the ability to add comments once again. You'll also regain any reputation you may have earned as that guest account.

Is it possible to merge that topic with my current account in this way? –  kvphxga Dec 6 '10 at 16:25
