Annoying error message when I want to convert an answer into a comment

When I just quoted from a post to comment on it, I found that my message is instead posted as an answer. I decoded to delete the message and repost it as a comment, but then the automated forum patrol turns up, telling that my message looks too much alike another, and I have to wait awhile before I can repost it as a comment. This is downright infuriating.

As a workaround, I used to change a few words in my comment. But this is not easy when you wrote your best answer.
