[D] How should we think about public comments before review-submission on OpenReview?
For better or worse, OpenReview gives a lot of power to individuals not assigned reviewer roles. We’ve all seen good examples of this (e.g. pointing out something important you’re sure could be missed by a reviewer, like “your code uses train data at test time!”) and bad examples of this (e.g. trolling, or pure opinions like “This is a useless result.”) But there’s a lot room between these.
People who comment on OpenReview before paper-acceptances are finalized, and people with opinions on the matter, how should we as a community approach this new tool? What do you think you should be trying to add with a comment? What are you careful not to do?
