Is it true that we dont get paid by commenting?

Whoever said that is incorrect. If you start a discussion and no one replies you do not get recognition for it. However, commenting on discussions, replying to people who reply to your discussions and responding to anyone is counted. The person who said this was probably confusing earning with an increase in the activity figure, that is the number in brackets next to your name. It only ever goes up once for each discussion you reply to but no you get paid for every quality response you make no matter how many times you reply to a discussion. That is how fun discussions come about between users. Some people here start discussions and never reply to the people who respond because it does not increase their activity number and they think they will not get paid for responding to them. They are incorrect. The TOS says you do not get paid for just saying thank you for replying but if you reply to their response with a new comment it is counted like any other quality post.
