Block Comments entirely/hide "add comment"
As I stated in the wishlist thread for Job Modules, I had originally hoped to use the blogs module to manage our jobs postings, since they're relatively infrequent, and since it has an RSS feed, but at the time it didn't look like the "Add Comment" could be shut off, and we definitely don't want comments with job posts.
I went back and revisited this, and when I switch all the possible visitor types to 'Read', the 'Add Comment' is still visible to the public. I can log in as a member, type out a comment, and click the button to add it, and only get blocked at that point.
I get the generic message:
This makes sense in the logic of how the blog module is set up, but for my purposes doesn't work. "Add comment" being visible always invites comments. It seems better to me to have its visibility determined by user type and if it's allowed to comment.

Any update on the system bug that keeps showing "add comment" even when no comments are allowed at any permission level?
Generally speaking - this is system bug. When no comments are allowed for all levels and public, system show hide "Add comment" link all the time. I'll add this into our bug queue.
