When reviewing a pull request, newly added comments by a reviwer should be batched and only sent once the reviewer completes a review (accept/reject). This provides the reviewer an opportunity to evaluate all comments holistically before sending them out. Currently reviewers can opt to not press the "Comment" button, but that leaves the comment at risk of being lost when the reviewer navigates away from the file or closes the web page. There are times when developers immediately respond to feedback posted on a review before a reviewer has completed the review. This can be detrimental as individual comments can be taken out of content, or reviewers may want to make edits to comments after seeing additional changes without having the initial comments sent.
