Can we get rid of the threshold of 15 chars for comments?

Is there any logical reason for that? And just to prove how unnatural it is: Why can't I simply say thanks?

Why do I have to type unrelated text to post my comment? Ridiculous, unnatural, frustrating.

  • It has a long history on meta, by the way. There way several methods to "circumvent" it and people claimed it was a "bug" in the system and Jeff became angry one day and decided to shut off all the holes. – xmm0 Jan 8 '10 at 11:27

I suspect it's precisely to discourage comments such as "Thanks" or "Me too". Thank someone by upvoting them - the text is just noise when you consider SO as a repository of meaningful information.
