So today I was on Chinese Language and was posting a comment. After writing the comment, I pressed enter to post. However, a new line is inserted:

new line added

Then I went to Stack Overflow and posted a comment. This time, pressing enter did not add a new line. It did not add a new line on User Experience either.

Why? Bug?


Each site can ask to disable the Enter from submitting comments.

For example Chinese Language SE asked it here: Disable [Enter] in comment field and it was indeed done, two years ago.

This is the reason given there:

My IME allows me to choose from several hanzi and commits the selected hanzi by typing [Enter]. At the moment I have to edit the comment for every hanzi I enter (which also means I can write a comment for at most 5 minutes).

Which does make sense. So I'd say that any language-specific site has a high chance of disabling Enter from submitting comments for that reason.

More sites where Enter is disabled from submitting: (Feel free to add more)
