I have no objection to adding the ability to give anonymous and private comments, although my suspicion is that the ability would go largely unused. I think it’d be harmful for the comments to be public (even if anonymous). Beyond the vote count, I don’t think it’d be healthy to share information on why people voted as they did publicly.

I note that ‘anonymous’ comments are rarely truly anonymous - I think that my writing style and opinions are sufficiently well-known within the XSF that folks would have a fair shot at guessing which were mine, for example.
