I recently noticed that the mobile site supports 'x characters left' in comments. But, it's not always there. Some investigation revealed that it shows up while editing a comment but not while posting it.

This seems illogical... Comment posting is more frequent than comment editing, and this is more useful when writing a comment.

Extending this feature won't add bloat; the code is already there.

Could the character count functionality be extended to all comment boxes?

    This is really a problem... I was trying to send a comment earlier from my cellphone and was like !*&?$!*& why is it not working.. And then when I got on my pc and tried to send the exact same comment I saw the "enter at least X character more".. Commented Mar 25, 2013 at 23:32
