Comment awaits moderation - what does that mean With comment moderation turned on, when someone submits a comment on your blog it will not automatically post to your site until you or someone else approves it. The site administrator will receive an email notification when a comment is submitted and waiting for review and approval. Comment moderation is optional and highly recommended. MOST comments are spam so you really want the protection this extra step provides. Otherwise a ton a spam comments will publish to your site automatically. To make it a little easier, a second optional setting will automatically approve subsequent comments from the same user. For example, your reader "email@example.com" wrote in a comment and it was approved. The next time "firstname.lastname@example.org" writes another comment, WordPress will automatically approve it.
