If on "Discussion Settings" console page
"Users must be registered and logged in to comment" - is checked
then any visitor can leave comments on a site.
But if guest knows Email and/or "display name" of any registered user he can leave the comment as though it was this user!
Admin Email is 'admin[at]myblog.com'. Admin display name is 'Administrator'.
Guest fill out comment form with:
and press the "Submit Comment" button

As a result the comment of the visitor and the comment of the Administrator look absolutely equally! =/
