As the title asks... I'm doing my normal reviews and the one hing I do on almost every "first post from a new user" is welcome them to the site and put suggested links to help them learn the ropes. See Why are some people reviewing new posts and not directing them to the meta and help pages?
I can no longer post comments... At the bottom of the post being reviewed, it says:
comments disabled on deleted / locked posts / reviews
Why did this change and what's the reasoning? Isn't this counter-productive?
