I am not able to comment on my own question. So the flow goes like

1) Posted a question

2) Someone posted a comment to my question asking for some more details or some suggestions.

3) I am not able to reply to them because I don't have 15 reputation.

I think it will be good to remove this constraint atleast for the my own posts. No?

    You are already supposed to be able to do this. The rep is only for commenting elsewhere. – Martijn Pieters Jul 18 '12 at 11:34

    Are you sure you are typing more than 15 characters! – defau1t Jul 18 '12 at 11:36
  • Nope, I just posted a question in programmers.stackexchange, and with a reputation 1 I don't see add comment option. Just now... Once I get 6 reputation, I got the add comment option. Actually the same goes for posting pictures in the question rite? – Mohan Kumar Jul 18 '12 at 11:38

  • @MartijnPieters I saw. – Daniel Fischer Jul 18 '12 at 11:39
  • @MohanKumar: Yet you commented here on your own question, and you only have 1 rep on MSO. Clearly the system is working for you despite your lack of rep. – Martijn Pieters Jul 18 '12 at 12:08
  • Yes I did. Surprisingly I can't that time. – Mohan Kumar Jul 18 '12 at 12:12
  • Moving this to programmers meta, as it's a specific issue on that site. Also, I suggest you post a link to the question you can't post a comment on. – casperOne Jul 18 '12 at 12:29

As of now, the issue appears resolved:

  1. you were able to comment on the question: Added details in the question...
  2. you were able to comment on the answer to your question: As you say, It depends on the IO wait...

For the sake of completeness, adding also a reference to question timeline:
Sudden breakthrough in ability to comment could possibly be triggered by question upvote
but I wouldn't bet on that given that privileges page doesn't show any statement about this.
