It's not that simple. Consider a site where comments can only be seen by
logged-in users (not sure if that's possible with WordPress, but it
surely is with Geeklog). In that case it's not clear if by posting a
comment the submitter also implictly approved it being scanned by an
unknown (to him) third party.

After thinking some more about it, I think it's not really a problem,
but I'm going to look into it anyway, just to be sure ...
