On the example of the plasma and mode parameters relevant, e.g., to the experiments on the rotational stabilization of resistive wall modes (RWMs) reported in Reimerdes et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 98, 055001 (2007)], it is shown that the plasma resistivity can have a strong impact on the stability of RWMs. The stability criteria for kinetic RWMs derived in Hu and Betti [Phys. Rev. Lett. 93, 105002 (2004)] has been complemented by the restriction on the maximum mode damping rate.
