I came across this question on Stack Overflow: What is difference between const and non const key?, which has one comment by user Soerium. I hovered over his name link and saw that he has just the 1 rep.

In the privilege page, Comment Everywhere privileges require 50 rep. Soerium is not OP of question.

I assume that user has answer a question which was flagged by other users ( as NAA ). While handling the flag moderator has converted his/her answer to the comment ( if it is useful answer ).


If a user (mostly new) posts link only answer then it is automatically converted to comment. This looks the same case.
