I thought I remembered seeing a setting somewhere for comments to NOT display until approved, but now I can't recall where I saw that...provided I was not hallucinating...

I noticed the past few days that any notifications of comments don't appear in the notifications list until I approve the comment. (I am seeing the comments as they show up next to the Hubs link on the homepage, so that...
