Format of comments

Having the comments in an easily parsable format (i.e. txt, csv, ...) would be better than PDF, and probably more useful if people want to do further analyses on this dataset.

The PDF prints very nicely who are probably interested in just reading through the comments. The PDF also includes the actual text, it's not just an image. You can copy and past the text out into a txt, or CSV file very easily if someone would like it in that format.

As David Solomon notes, the PDF is not an image file and converts to text nicely using the pdftotext command-line utility on a Linux computer. I just converted his comment file to confirm. And, since it's a command-line utility, scripting for batch conversion is trivial (have done that before for other PDF files).
