We have a Help Center posting that outlines this. For your convenience, here is the text from that page:

How come I can't comment as often per day as I used to?

In January 2013, we surveyed thousands of Ask.com Q&A Community members to find out what people love about the place, and where we can improve things. One of the ways in which survey respondents were almost in total agreement? The need to focus more on questions and answers.

We agree! We love the ability to get to know people in comments, but our purpose has always been - first and foremost - to help people connect with answers to their questions. For that reason, we've changed the number of comments that can be made within a 24-hour period, but question and answer limits remain plentiful!

We appreciate everyone who took the time to respond to our survey, and we're glad to continue helping the Ask.com Q&A Community be the place that everyone wants it to be.

Please note: creating extra accounts to bypass this guideline is against our Community Guidelines.

Mr. Wayne that link isn't tappable, could you redo it in a comment?
Report as
I saw it yesterday and I just saw it again now ! Too bad there wasn't that many decent questions to answer ! You can find it in their help center ! I'm counting my comments to see how many before they cut me off . I wouldn't mind so much , but there are so many dumb questions that this isn't going to fly with me ! I'll just use my other sites !

Yesterday it was 30 min then it wouldn't let me comment for 3 hrs.
Report as
I cannot see how this would improve the site. Honestly. If someone doesn't want to see the comments, don't look.
Report as
DolceMonserrat7
I know right. That's what I was thinking.

Sunshine Girl, Ask was broken. I've been here for almost two years and I've seen the "ideal" Ask that people are always going for.
Report as
Marcus, I have been here since November of 2011. There are some members here that I feel the need to keep in touch with at this point. With the new comment rule, I strongly believe this will result in people exchanging personal information in order to keep in touch.
Report as
Sorry for assuming I've been here longer. You may be right about people exchanging information but it's not Ask's fault, they just want a Q&A site. It's hard to stop people from exchanging information on here anyway so I'm sure one big burst is worth the future outcome. Although I sympathize for anyone doesn't like the new rule.

Well SecondBreakfastClub still works! I don't understand how it's letting me comment. I know how much you don't like SecondBreakfastClub, but it's the only way we can talk.

Apparently making more than one account is against the rules so dont mentain the other one that I have. and odnt worry. I wont leave you.

Well this isn't fair! If the reason I get on ask, can't talk to me anymore, what am I supposed to do? For your last comment, did you get Eric's email?
Report as
They did the same thing to me yesterday ! Said three hours ! Came back after four and still couldn't comment !
Report as
I havent checked my email yet. This is stupid. I dont see how anyone likes this rule. Ask is gonna lose a whole lot of people if they keep this rule. And Mr.Wayne, the same thing happened to me! It said three hours so i went away and even after 5 and a half hours it said I had to wait.
Report as
thatoneguy97
How can they agree on this? Limiting our comments for 24 hour periods? At least tell us how many we have when we get on! Even on the app.

WOW REALLY JUST 30 MINUTES?!?! I couldn't at one time comment back for 12 hours I guess you must be accounted for as on their favorite list or something because they wouldn't even let me comment back for that long such as 12 FREAKING HOURS FOR CRISS SAKE..... Oh you lucky ducky LOL -___-
