This is no longer valid. Comments are auto-approved in wp_allow_comment if the currently-logged in users have the moderate_comments capability, which admins obviously will have:

if ( isset( $user ) && ( $user_id == $post_author || $user->has_cap( 'moderate_comments' ) ) ) {
    // The author and the admins get respect.
    $approved = 1;
