Last year I tried unsuccessfully numerous times to post a comment on a closed question to NO avail. I saw both Wade and Blubird two makes comments on separate closed questions. Is there a certain amount of karma points required before you can do this?
Also, can you post an answer on a closed question or is it against the rules? If it is against the rules, is it possible to reopen a question which has been closed? If so, how does one do this?

As it currently stands, if someone has started writing a comment or answer to a question that is closed while they are doing it, then the system will allow them to post that comment or answer. Otherwise it cannot be done. Only someone with moderator status can reopen a closed question.

Yes I used to be able to post a short comment to closed questions. I can not anymore now. I believe it was as Simon said a software glitch. It had something to do with converting a comment to an answer or an answer to a comment. Anyway I can't do that anymore I found out when I tried posting a link to here in his closed question.
So obviously the glitch has been fixed and closed questions really are completely closed.
