How come I can Recommend some comments but not others?

I go through the comments and Recommend the ones I like. But in some threads there is no Recommend button on 20-40% of the comments. Why is this is? It's really annoying.

    Hello, and thanks for asking. It's a good question.

    There is a very limited period of time during which comments can be recommended. For most comments, it's 24 hours after they were posted. For Tip Jars, it's seven days after they were posted.

    It is often the case that stories are published a while before they are featured on the site, and also common as a result for readers to see comments on a story a while after that 24-hour period has passed. Sorry for the disappointment in not being able to rate a comment--but as long as a story is open for new comments it remains possible for you to post a reply to one you like.

    Thanks for your support of the site.
