    I'd like a screen stating essentially 'comment received and will be reviewed' following any denied or held comments.

    A FAQ question has been added:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/index.php?title=Combating_Comment_Spam/FAQ&action=submit#How_can_I_display_a_notice_that_a_comment_is_held_and_pending_approval.3F

    Searches have turned up the following:

    comment thanks
    comment apology
    comment hold
    comment received
    page 20 of tag 'comments' http://wordpress.org/tags/comments/page/20

    Comment received notification
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/44170
    Akismet: Notify commentor comment marked as spam?

    comment_moderation states setting on comment form
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/25629
    Redirect users to their just-posted comment
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/29234

    Podz solution as a part of the comment form. ( http://wordpress.org/support/topic/44170 ) :

    Open 'comments.php'
    Find this line
    <input name="submit" type="submit" tabindex="5" value="<?php _e("Say it!"); ?>" />

    Above that, add this (I've included the above for reference)
    <p>

    Comment moderation is in use. Please do not submit your comment twice - it will appear shortly

    <input name="submit" type="submit" tabindex="5" value="<?php _e("Say it!"); ?>" />
    </p>

    -----------

    Ideas resulting in a notification displayed following comment submission?

    I would like to inform authors that their comments are awaiting moderation. I'm running v. 2.2.1, but I can't locate comments.php in order to add the lines recommended above. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    I should add some more details to this post: I'm running the K2 v096 theme. There is a file, comments.php, located in the K2 theme directory, and a comment.php in the wp-admin directory. However, in neither can I find the line

    <input name="submit" type="submit" tabindex="5" value="<?php _e("Say it!"); ?>" />
