I have been playing around some with the script and noticed one other thing. When I was logged out, I was able to post up a comment and it was approved automatically. I didn't see anything to turn off auto posting of comments other than in the user level section. So I can currently prevent someone logged in from posting comments, but not just a plain visitor (other than total blocking of comments). Is there a switch to turn off comment posting if they are not logged in?

The way the system works at the moment is. All comments are controlled by each individual news post. For example when you create a new post in the system, you're given the option to allow comments, disallow them or allow them but require them to be approved first before they get shown.
Access levels have nothing to do with comments in the current version, although this may change in the next version as users will be able to register their own account.
