I met with Canvas chat about an instructor who disabled comments on announcements globally, but a student was still able to comment. It was determined that regardless of comments being turned off by announcement vs. globally disabled, students can still reply to comments, announcements, etc. via e-mail. I was told the case would be forwarded to an engineer, but no timeline guesses as to when this would be fixed.
