Would it be possible/easy to set up a MetaFilter account which allows for tagging, favorites etc., but has no ability to post comments?

MetaFilter accounts are very useful for being able to tag posts as interesting, and to tag particular posts as interesting (I know the term "favorite" is contentious, there, but the functionality works the same way...). In general, browsing as a member is a much richer experience than browsing without a membership. However, it's all to easy to get tempted into contributing.
The obvious answer to this, of course, is self-control, but assuming the social impulse is hardwired, is there an easy way to shut off posting on an account?
