Sure, Here are the steps
1. I did not login, i.e. I am an anonymous user.
2. I opened the review request diff. (Still anonymous)
3. I view the diff and enter comments on some lines (Still anonymous)
4. The publish button is still shown here (still anonymous)
5. I click publish thinking that my comments will go, but since I am
anonymous these comments are not posted.
6. Comments are lost and Nothing is published.
Comments not posted is fine, but all my efforts in writing those
comments is lost. So at the time when anonymous user tries to write
the comment there itself he should be stopped and asked to login.
