For what it's worth, commenting is already a fully-supported feature of ResearchGate (a free-to-use platform that is already among the most widely used by academics, especially in the sciences and science-adjacent fields—e.g., experimental philosophy, empirically oriented philosophy of mind, etc.). RG also provides most of the metrics that PhilPapers/PhilArchives provides. So philosophers, especially those doing anything related to science, may want to consider claiming their account/papers on RG to join in open commentary of their own and colleagues' work.

I've shared slides from a presentation comparing (among other things) the various online platforms for distributing and commenting on research at the hyperlink embedded into my name for this comment.

FWIW, ResearchGate seems to be a commercial enterprise, like Academia.edu, Google Scholar etc., and requires a log-in to comment. Freelosophy (like PubPeer before us) is not commercial and does not require log-in to comment. Moreover, if I may say so myself, it is also easier to navigate and less cluttered than RG :)
