Ever since Steam started allowing users to leave game reviews, they also allowed other users to comment on those reviews, whether to agree with it, correct it, insult it, or just leave a random string of nonsense words. Today that may be coming to an end as a recent update disables the ability to receive comments on Steam reviews by default.

This change was first spotted by Reddit user Kiu16. When a review for a game is left on Steam there is always an option box below it, where users can change language, review visibility and so forth. Now there is a new option: a small checkbox labeled ‘Allow Comments’. This is unchecked by default, which means that unless reviewers opt-in, all comments will be disabled.
