I was the one who flagged your answer1.

Acknowledging the fact that you're breaking the rules doesn't mean you get to break the rules. The flag merely agreed with your assessment that you were breaking the rules.

The flag isn't meant to punish you. It is meant to be helpful. By flagging the answer it can be brought to the attention of those who can migrate to the comment section if they wish2, left as an answer, or deleted.

The best way to solve this problem is to bide your time, answering questions that are clear enough for a good answer, and/or asking good quality questions. You only need five up-votes on answers to gain the ability to comment. Currently you have 28 points so you just need two more up-votes(on answers), and one edit in order to post comments. That doesn't seem like an unreasonable barrier to me.

In closing, I'm sorry you felt discouraged due to my flag, and I hope you continue to contribute to the community by asking, answering, and suggesting good edits to questions. Also for what its worth; very low quality questions, like you wanted to comment on, often don't pan out anyway. Generally speaking, you're better off putting time and energy into questions that follow the guidelines for asking a good questionthe guidelines for asking a good question.


1 - That is very kind of you to refer to me as a "senior user". I'm only senior, to some, in reputation points. I'm junior to most of the regulars here in actual ability/knowledge. I've proved that fact multiple times by dumb things I've said/suggested. If you stick around you'll probably have an opportunity to see that.

2 - I don't have that power.
