The VB team had comments enabled, but only when someone was logged in via Passport. The VB team just enabled anonymous comments at http://blogs.msdn.com/vbteam. I expect you will see more active blogging on the VB team blog now that Visual Studio 2005 is about to release in a few weeks and there is a lot of enthusiasm around VB 2005 as well as what is coming in VB 9.0 in the future, http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/future.
