Why do you want to publish publicly in the first place if you are not willing to accept comments?

I could see instances where it makes sense!

For instance, I think it would be a valuable option to have if you were in the position where you wanted to post something particularly sensitive and would like to prevent any potential abusive comments before they happen.

I have a better idea: If you have sensitive information, don't post them publicly. Otherwise, there's no point in muting others especially here in a community based on sharing.
