Here’s what they say:
The updated Comments Box provides moderation tools that were created based on developer feedback. Admins can choose to make the default for new comments entered either “visible to everyone” or “has limited visibility” on the site (i.e., the comment is only visible to the commenter and their friends), to help mitigate irrelevant content.
In addition to changing the visibility of a comment, admins can also blacklist words and ban users. If a new comment is published from a banned user or contains a blacklisted word, this comment will automatically have limited visibility.
The key is that moderation does not equal no comments seen until you act.
I implemented the comment box here: http://www.socialmediaexaminer.com/launch/
Major issue is ZERO notification. You need to constantly check the page.
I would suggest you implement DISQUS instead
