I see that a user requires a minimum reputation of 150 to vote in primaries and the final election. However, users with much less reputation than this can comment.
I have seen at least one example of a user with low reputation posting what are perhaps quite damaging comments. This could be seen as a user that has demonstrated minimal commitment having a disproportionate influence on a nominee with very high commitment.
Should users require the same level of reputation to comment as they do to vote?
