Recently, I got used to seeing:

Comments disabled on locked/deleted questions/reviews

when I was reviewing. I also finally got that it doesn't talk about "locked/deleted reviews", but should be bracketed differently.

But now, I saw this (below the question that the answer was posted to):

enter image description here

and, since I have ample reputation, this is plain misinformation.

Can it be changed/reverted, please?

Edit: Also happens with the "Duplicate" part of a close-as-duplicate review. (Example; hm, doesn't work when linking after-the-fact)

Also happens with the "First Post" part, again below the question associated to a first answer. (Example, click "show 6 more comments")

  • $\begingroup$ @Sklivvz In any case, I just confirmed in a duplicate-review that the old wording is back for those. However, in a first-post review I just did, the "50 rep" still occurred. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @BenCollins When was this fixed/will this go live? I'm sure I saw some examples just today. E.g. this one. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Lord_Farin so sorry - I thought I had the updated code enabled on every site, but it wasn't on MO. It's live now. $\endgroup$ Oct 8, 2013 at 14:58

This bug was really a problem with the text of the comments link in certain cases. The behavior is correct: adding comments is disabled for most users on questions of answer reviews. See Site review shows me a disabled "add comment" link, and tells me I need a reputation of at least 50.
