I entered an answer to a question and it got posted as a comment. But I don't have enough reputation to post comments and it was meant to be an answer.

How could this happen? Have I done something wrong? Why was I able to post a comment without the necessary rep.?

    I would suspect this was change from an answer to a comment by a mode. Link to question?
