Just a personal opinion, but I came to mostly hate web-based comments.
Spam for the most, and the few legitimate ones are usually not
particularly interesting and do not justify the moderation effort.

I can understand the wish to have a comments section on a blog, where
one gives a detailed post about some technical detail and expects
feedback or corrections from peers. But on a project website, where
the purpose is to introduce the project to users and the communication
one-sided by design, the benefit of comments is much less obvious

Also as Sven cleverly pointed out, comments on a project's website
tend to end up as a bug reporting channel, at the expense of the
actual bug tracker. It's easier for users to just post a comment than
read the "report a bug" section, and that's what many naturally end up
