On a theme's settings page there is a toggle for "User verification status in comments", but this is inaccurate as it's not entirely restricted to comments. For example you could allow anonymous users to create nodes of a certain type, and if you display authoring information for that content type it will still say "Anonymous (not verified)". To make matters worse, if the comment module is not enabled you cannot uncheck the toggle.
We should either rename the setting and remove the
module_exists() check around it, or split it up like user pictures, which has "User pictures in posts" and "User pictures in comments".
