Comment form doesn't appear

Hi All,

We have some issue with our Confluence server edition. We decided to let anonymous users comment articles. I did the necessary changes in the Space Permissions section (Anonymous Access -> Comments -> Add -> allow), in the Global Permissions anonymous users are allowed to use our documentation portal. But when I navigate to any article being anonymous, that is to say unlogged, I don't see a comment form at the article bottom.

Could anybody please help about reasons why can this happen?

I don't think anonymous users can leave comments because a comment must be tied to a user.

I found out that the comment form was hidden earlier by custom CSS like described there.  Now the problem is gone since I have deleted the appropriate string from this CSS.
