Why?

Can someone post why this is needed or useful?
I don't grasp it as posted.

Thanks!

to give us the opportunity to test the system with rob and (hopefully) get us all authorised to post comments....

This basically stops newly registered users from posting unmoderated comments. That will block the spammers, unless they first post some meaningful comment and only then start abusing the system.

(As a result, right now everyone is considered such "new" user, until the system has learned most of them...)

This is odd - this post was supposed to reply to another thread here - not this one!
YIKES.
