While the sd filter is a good idea, it only works if an article gets sufficient votes. My point is that a 1 vote can push a new author so far down the ratings that their article is never read; and this means they won't have a chance to recover. Consider how offputting this is for a new author who has spent an age slaving over an article that they are rightfully proud of, (and no, it might not be the greatest quality, but at least they have had the guts to have a go), only to see one selfish vote demolish their article.

In this, I think that mandatory comments have been a good thing. More importantly, they give other users a chance to disagree with the vote (and in cases where it's obvious that the 1-vote has no value, they can vote to remove the vote). Again, this is a positive thing.

I say, let's keep it with the mandatory comments. They do serve a purpose (even if it is only to identify HWSNBN's sock-puppet accounts).
