How do comments work?

I looked all over the help and FAQ and couldn't find how to do a basic thing like respond to a Stack Overflow answer. I don't want to answer the question, I simply want to add a comment to an existing answer that someone posted to the question.

    You need a certain amount of reputation before you can do that, I believe – Akron Oct 28 '11 at 21:55
  • stackoverflow.com/privileges/comment 50 reputation. So you need 34 more. – Akron Oct 28 '11 at 21:55

You can't comment on answers until you have at least 50 reputation points: see What is reputation? How do I earn (and lose) it? | Help Center - Stack Overflow


There will be a grey 'reply' button that looks like text underneath this answer.


You need 50+ points to Leave comments.Though you can leave comments on your own questions right from the get go.
