can a person with "view only" permission make comments?

I am making a table in confluence to capture comments about a list of topics. I also have status bars on that table. I would like people to be able to make comments but not modify the page in any other way. Can people make comments if i restrict everyone to view only?

Hi @Sean Ross welcome to the Atlassian community.

To answer your query, I would say the confluence user who has "space admin rights" can restrict the viewer from modifying the page, but can enter comments or delete his own comments if no further discussions happening on his comment section.

Here's the overview of the settings page. If you have space admin access, then try your hands (as per the below screen shot). If you are in a free plan, you will not have edit permissions option.

(Note: I'm on free plan tried to reproduce your query. Below is the screen shot of permissions an admin can exercise for there employees)

I hope my post answers your query. Stay safe and stay healthy.
