People obviously don't like the comment limit. Why does it exist?

Yes. You comment too many times you take a 30 minute break. Then a .3 hour break that's really more than 5

Why don't we just complain to ask.com services or whatever? customer support I think. I would, but I haven't yet hit the limit so I have no experience.

To prevent spam. For example, someone could set up a bot to comment on every question with a link to some phishing website.

They tired of people chalking up big numbers with answers like "awesome" or "cool" maybe. Instead of giving a real answer to the question>

To keep wiseguys from mis-using the site for personal gain. Like writing their life's history.

What is preventing me from doing that? I was born in Arizona. My goal in life is to become the best artist out there. I currently live in *blah blah* and go to *blah blah* for my education.

Nothing's stopping me!

Like most anything, some folks abuse the privilege, so all are punished. I can understand why Ask would impose a limit, but not sure if I agree with how it is implemented.

I guess so. Last week I witnessed a person bullied by a mod so badly that she took down her avatar and vanished. She had some really keen answers, and as far as I could see, she was not treated fairly.
