In this setup the Site Admins group is defined as being the moderator for this particular comment view. These users will have extra moderation options

Manager users, Moderators or Trusted users can post bad words like: dotNet.

Comments posted when only logged in as a manager user will use your manager name.

Moderators options are always shown when you are logged in as manager user.

When you are logged in your own posts have a special color so you can easily spot them from the comment view.

The form also does not display any guest fields when logged in.

Notice that I can't abuse <b>html</b>, , or [+placeholder+] tags.
