Comments were removed on 7/23/2020, as has been asked and answered DOZENS of times since the change occurred.

My guess is enough people complained about how badly it was being abused, so it was removed. Too many used it to attack other users or to respond to questions posted by users who had them blocked. You must've scrolled right past the MANY questions already asked about it here.

Commenting on answers has been removed because people have been abusing the comment section. For how long we don't know. It could be temporary, or it could be permanent.

For the upteenth time, the comments were disabled across the entire Yahoo platform, including commenting on YA answers. This was for security and safety reasons. Also, there are legal liability reasons for Verizon because of increasing spamming, violent threats, and attempts to breach security around a presidential election. They did the same thing in 2012 and 2016.
