I just wanted to remark on something which happens more and more often since the new review system was deployed.

Some poor guy posts a non-answer, which gets into the review queue. Then people review it and feel compelled to leave a comment, and this guy that just wanted to say "thank you" but didn't know about commenting, gets a stream of comments telling him (or her) not to do that.

Moreover the boilerplate comments are quite formal and having a stream of formal sounding comments about your misbehavior is not a good feeling. Especially when you just wanted to say thanks.

Please see if someone else left a comment before leaving one yourself. The review options include "don't leave a comment", which is more than reasonable if someone else did so already.

Could you point out an example? I'm not really sure what you are referring to here. – MJD Jan 20 '13 at 2:23
@MJD: Well, a 10k example: math.stackexchange.com/a/282325/622 and I saw more. – Asaf Karagila Jan 20 '13 at 6:24
There should not be more than one /review comment, duplication is prevented. Are you sure this is still happening, as it then would be a bug in the mechanism. – Mad Scientist Jan 21 '13 at 7:51
@MadScientist: Is that true for all sort of comments, or just one from each kind (and zero for "no comment")? – Asaf Karagila Jan 21 '13 at 7:57
@AsafKaragila I'm not sure how it works exactly – Mad Scientist Jan 21 '13 at 8:22
