Here is my article on this:

This change is expensive, burdensome, pretends to address a problem that does no exist, and is really aimed at destroying family privacy once all of our weapons fall under the NFA, eventually (at least that is their goal).

"including any personal information provided"

Do they post your name and address along w/ your comment?

After my post, there was a window indicating that my name would be public, and of course my comment, but not any other identifying info (address, etc.)

More anonymity is possible when submitting by fax or mail:

B. Confidentiality
Comments, whether submitted electronically or on paper, will be made available for public viewing at ATF, and on the Internet as part of the eRulemaking initiative, and are subject to the Freedom of Information Act. Commenters who do not want their name or other personal identifying information posted on the Internet should submit their comment by mail or facsimile, along with a separate cover sheet that contains their personal identifying information. Both the cover sheet and comment must reference this docket number (ATF 41P). Information contained in the cover sheet will not be posted on the Internet. Any personal identifying information that appears within the comment will be posted on the Internet and will not be redacted by ATF.
Any material that the commenter considers to be inappropriate for disclosure to the public should not be included in the comment. Any person submitting a comment shall specifically designate that portion (if any) of his comments that contains material that is confidential under law (e.g., trade secrets, processes). Any portion of a comment that is confidential under law shall be set forth on pages separate from the balance of the comment and shall be prominently marked “confidential” at the top of each page. Confidential information will be included in the rulemaking record but will not be disclosed to the public. Any comments containing material that is not confidential under law may be disclosed to the public. In any event, the name of the person submitting a comment is not exempt from disclosure.

The site must be run by the same people that run Obamacare. It does not work.
