I disagree on the "not being worst" part.
If Sergej who currently maintains more than 40% of the repo on his own read
the comments
on his packages, i imagine he would spend his life reading comments.
See for example the link with brain0's comment. "Reported" as a comment on
June 1st, fixed: never
reported in the bug tracker on the 16th. fixed on the 19th.
And from personal experience i can tell you that he fixes ASAP all the bugs
reported to him directly
by email.

Anyway my suggestion was about unsupported. I thought (but maybe i was
mistaking) that you guys
(TUs) had already decided to disable comments on community already the last
time this was brought up.
