I was curious to see a comment from a user who had only 1 reputation on one of my answers (the commenter was not the original OP).

The comment was a fine question and I of course had no objection to it, but I was still surprised that it was possible. The privileges page says that the "comment everywhere" privilege is granted only at 50 rep.

Why was this possible?

This user posted his/her comment as an answer (this happens oftentimes, because of reputation issue or a misunderstanding of how the site works), and it was flagged by some vigilant users. A moderator converted it as a proper comment beneath your reply.
