I saw the user daR post a comment when he had less than 10 rep. Was this a bug or was this posted as an answer and someone made it into a comment because it was helpful.

    Guess: He tried to post that link as an answer and the system automatically converted it to a comment as "barely more than a link" - maybe it doesn't check comment privileges in that scenario?

  • Their activity tab definitely shows them commenting in a way that would be... odd to be converted from an answer. (@animuson) +1

  • @Emracool Well when the system converts it in that scenario, it never actually creates the answer. It's more like "well, this doesn't really look like an answer, so I'm going to post a comment for you instead."

  • An, yeah, on second glance, you're right, @animuson - it looks like all their comments were on their own posts, except for one, which might have been posted as an answer instead.
