If the user could write something it wouldn't be a read-only user :)
There isn't that fine-graned access rights in PRTG.
Only group-based access rights down to sensor level.

OK can you give me a way to delete all sensor comments in single click ?

it is not possible bulk deleting comments. Sorry. However you might have a look at the setobjectproperty function of the PRTG API. this would allow you to automate the process.
