Okay, I’m taking another crack at solving my long standing comment issue. I’ve re-enabled comments to go through without the Steve’s Super Awesome Stamp of Approval. I grabbed a new version of a file from a nightly of WordPress. Let’s see if it works.
What should be happening is that commentor’s with previously approved comments get automatic approval on new comments. N00b’s comments get flagged for moderation and don’t appear until they get the SSASoA. To do this, WordPress checks the email address you enter, so if you don’t want to have you comment approved by me, keep using the same email address.
