Although commenting is good but there lots of spammers out there who comment on your blog just for the sake of a do-follow links ( backlinks ) to their blog. And this tends to decrease the quality of comments which in-turn reflects in the decreased readership on your article.
With commenting comes another time consuming work. Moderation. Comment moderation is the process of reading all the comments and deleting which are spammed or which you do not want your readers to read. This might not be a big task for blogs with low traffic but once you get the high traffic margin, it becomes a big headache and requires a lot of time investment.
People have the right to speak up and if they speak something negative about your article and other readers read this negative comment, then you'll see a declination of readership and it hurts your reputation. Not only that, people might use vulgar words or some words which many don't feel comfortable to read. This will also cause bad impression on your blog and depending on the words, you searching engine ranking might also come down.
