Why enable comment fading by default? As an 'unregistered' viewer, I have no 'right' to downvote anyone, yet the comment scoring that 'registered' users employ forcibly limits my ability to view comments others have deemed as unacceptable. In order to overcome this I would have to register and disable the fading. This effectively forces me to relenquish my right to privacy.

Has any consideration been given to how this 'font fading' practice reconciles with the Ontarians With Disabilities Act?

I suggest comment fading be disabled by default, and those registered users that wish to employ it may enable it independantly. That way comment score filtering and comment fading are handled in a consistent manner.
