That's not the point, the point is spam and crappy comments, both of 
which are much more likely than a reviewer deleting a review they don't 

The last thing I want is to have all the package pages on PyPI become 
semi-blogs with long threads of comments where people end up answering 
other peoples comments, etc, etc.

Ratings I like, comments I don't. I can tolerate comments if I can at 
least hoover them off my own packages.

Maybe a per-package option to disable comments? I would be fine to have 
something shown that says "This evil package doesn't want to let you 
comment on it" is that would make you happier ;-)
