How do comments work?

I know that you can answer a question by filling out the "Add An Answer" form and clicking submit, but how do I just reply to the question with a request for more information? I noticed that other people can do it, but I must be blind or something, because I don't see a "reply" button anywhere.

I'm using Chrome on OS X.

  • What's the reasoning for the rep requirement? Catching spam in comments would be harder? – Chris Marisic Feb 23 '10 at 16:18

    BTW-- The 50 rep limit does not apply to your own questions. – dmckee Feb 23 '10 at 18:58
  • @dotnetchris: Actually, catching spam in comments is harder, because it doesn't bump the question to the top. Comments are also harder to see, which is more of a factor in larger questions/answers with more comments, which show the "show more comments" button. – Hello71 Jul 15 '10 at 23:05

That is the Add Comment feature, and you need 50 reputation to do that. See the SO FAQ
