Why Are Certain Comments Highlighted in the Display?

Moderator comments can be highlighted in Categories and Campaigns to elevate feedback from the decision-making team. When Moderator Comment Highlighting is turned on, comments from Moderators will automatically be distinguished by a bar of color on the right side of the comment. They will also include the word Moderator next to the commenter's name.
