People have always done that (and worse, the comment you reported
yesterday was from last october), the bonus is that now we have a way to
keep the comments a little filtered. 

I will say thought that the admin script are a little buggy... when I
rejected this comment, I thought I would be taken to a web page to allow
me to explain why the comment was going to be rejected, but after
authenticating i was given some redirect which require authenticating
again which brought me to a "it's been rejected" screen... ie. i never
got a chance to explain why I rejected it (was going to tell the person
to point to the mailing list).  

On another one, I clicked the edit screen and instead of getting a box
to edit the content, I just got a search box to look for comments. 

I think both of these things need to be fixed, but otherwise I still
think this is an improvement over what we had, and that we might want to
take some time to clean up the old entries.
