Well, until you've all started receiving one-letter anonymous comments for every note you left, you won't get what we are experiencing here in Russia. In case of seemingly helpful answers, you cannot know if the comment was left by the same mapper, or just by a passing-by troll. Actually I can set up a bot that replies "Yes, I confirm that" to most of the notes, and 99% of mappers will consider that a legitimate comment.

Anonymous notes are okay, since they are annotated with "don't trust this blindly", but anonymous comments turn our notes system into a 4chan.
