This feature is total bullshit. Say I am an author, I write some marketing crap or total nonsense. Commenters are on-topic and refute most of my crap and non-sense. But I can choose to leave only favourable comments, and hide negative ones? How is that good for credibility (of dev.to) ?

This has already happened several times, one example being mentioned further up. And DEV.to does not have much credibility in itself; there's not enough curation and no editorial process to keep a consistent quality for that to happen. Chrome's article suggestions have had me end up at hastily thrown together articles way too many times, and since calling out low quality language is a violation of the Code of Conduct it will likely not change. Go team.
