# My comment is 20 characters but is less than 15?

I'm trying to post a comment that is 20 characters long, but "Comments must be at least 15 characters in length." Is this a bug?

• I've refreshed it - even tried a different comment. Still no go. I can ask comments elsewhere on the site though... Sep 24 '13 at 23:59
• What's the comment text?

• @Undo It was "@Undo Wow, thanks :D" Sep 25 '13 at 0:12
• It should work. Weird. (you're welcome, though :)

• If you start a comment with @<original poster>, we strip that out (if there are no other people commenting on the post), as the original poster will already be notified of comments to their posts. So, 20 - 6 == 14...
