Comment (by jeremyclarke):

 As far as I can tell the "if (!$user->ID):" is just there to stop the
 cookie from activating when the commenter is logged in. It breaks when you
 remove the '!' because now you're accidentally but explicitly blocking all
 non-logged-in users (whereas what was bothering you was just that there
 was blocking at all, as it's a useful message for all people who's
 comments are moderated).

 Really what this seems to need is to remove the check entirely. It seems
 like it's from a time when it would be assumed that logged-in users
 wouldn't be moderated or something. But people do moderate all comments
 and there's no way to force-allow comments from logged-in users without
 using a plugin. (this was a headache for awhile on the site i work on).

 Is there any reason this check exists? Otherwise it would make the most
 sense to just remove it entirely.

 remove lines 66 and 70 (the if and endif)
