    Because the function was removed. YA existed for YEARS without a comment function, and did fine (in fact, was at the height of its popularity). This is a Q&A site, not a chat forum, and since comments were more abused than properly-used, it's no loss that they were removed.

    Source(s): Per Yahoo: "In order to strengthen and improve community and engagement, we are temporarily disabling comments. Our goal is always to create a safe, engaging place to connect over interests and passions and we’d love your feedback on how to improve this experience. Please email us your feedback at yahoocommentfeedback@verizonmedia.com"

    Why is it that you are just now noticing it even though you have been posting for the last two weeks since this has happened?

    For the upteenth time, the comments were disabled across the entire Yahoo platform, including commenting on YA answers. This was for security and safety reasons. Also, there are legal liability reasons for Verizon because of increasing spamming, violent threats, and attempts to breach security around a presidential election. They did the same thing in 2012 and 2016.

    Commenting on answers has been removed because people have been abusing the comment section. For how long we don't know. It could be temporary, or it could be permanent.
