Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

Just in incognito mode, the comment help is always starts expanded. I can collapse it but if there are 10 answers in a page, it's expanded for all 10 of them. Anyone else notice that?

This is by design; new users need help with comments.

We suppress the help (you can still show it by explicitly clicking show help) once you reach a certain reputation threshold.

In fact, there are dozens of behaviors on the site specific to new and low rep users, not just this one...

I think you missed this part: "if there are 10 answers in a page, it's expanded for all 10 of them." That might be by design, but it's also kind of annoying. –  Joel Coehoorn Mar 1 '11 at 5:15
    
@joel think about it: this would only be true in a very rare and limited set of circumstances. You would have to be a brand new user, who owns (has just asked) a question with 10+ answers, and you are viewing the question you own. That is the only scenario where all comments are pre-expanded. –  Jeff Atwood Mar 1 '11 at 5:28
