Why does Stack Overflow require a contributor to have 50 reputation points before allowing to comment? I wanted to answer a problem that many have in Visual Studio with performance but I can't add my comment. I find it not only annoying that I can't contribute. Why should I come back and try to help others on this site if I'm not allowed to? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of this site?

If you want to answer the problem, you should be using answers, not comments.

Scroll down to the bottom of the page, beyond all the other answers, and find the heading:

followed by a text box and a big post your answer button.

    The shaking fist was how I thought people greeted each other until I was around 10. – jonsca Mar 24 '14 at 0:35
