Exact the plugin I need

Hi,
I like you comments widget. Here it is possible to display avatars.
But if I have a comment from Facebook the Facebook Avatars are not shown.

$output .= ‘<ul id=”ns”>’;
if ( $comments ) {
foreach ( (array) $comments as $comment) {
$output .= ‘<div class=”avat”>’;
$output .= get_avatar(get_comment_author_email($comment->comment_ID), $size) . ‘ ‘;
$output .= sprintf(__(‘%1$s on </div><li class=”ns-comment”> %2$s’, ‘widget-recent-comments’), get_comment_author(), ‘comment_ID) ) . ‘”>’ . get_the_title($comment->comment_post_ID) . ‘‘);
$output .= ‘<br style=”clear:both;height:0;margin:0;padding:0;” />’;
}
}

Is it possible to do that with an if else commando like this example?

if ($comment->user_id) {echo get_avatar($td_comment_auth_email, 50);} else {echo get_avatar( $comment, 50 );}

So if an User is registered on the Site he has it´s avatar, and the Users from outside the Site have their avatar for Example Facebook shown?

Greets, Karl
