Thanks for a great theme, which I use at

This is a small request, but I think is important.

I have set up the blog so that people can comment on posts without having to enter their name and email (i.e. optional). Comments will be moderated.

However, during testing, if I don't enter a name, it accepts the comment, but there is no note that the comment is awaiting moderation.

If I enter a name, then the note that comment is awaiting moderation will be shown, as expected.

Can you please update this module so it can show the note about awaiting moderation ? If name is optional, and name is left empty.

On a more minor matter, when setting up Suffusion theme for comments, there is a field where we can type the word required or optional. This does not show in actual usage. The workaround I did was to type it in together with either Name or Email. Like "Name (optional)". It overflows outside the box containing "Name", however.
