I recently lost commenting permissions due to offering a bounty.
Since then, I've noticed that when reading answers with comments, clicking on the "add / show 1 more comments" link doesn't reveal the recently added comment.
This link appears when a new comment is added to the discussion after you've loaded the page. It worked while I had commenting permissions. It doesn't work now.
It makes sense to not allow me to actually add a comment, but I shouldn't be prevented from showing the recently added comment, especially because I can view it if I reload the page.
I confirmed that it isn't a problem local to my browser by visiting this question from a different browser as a non-logged in user and I could reproduce the issue:
The "add / show 1 more comments" link doesn't work when you don't have comment permissions or are not logged in.
Steps to reproduce:
- Open a second browser that doesn't have you logged into stackexchange.
- As your logged in user, here, in this browser window, add a comment to this question.
- Notice the "add / show 1 more comments" link appear in the other browswer, that you're not logged in with.
- Click on that link.
