So that the server software that generates the "flag" link, and the software that processes it, can be more general, without special cases. If it doesn't have to do comparisons about who wrote the comment vs. who is logged in to flag it, that's fewer things that can go wrong.

no watch i will look for the thing that say flag this comment. i can only flag it if i log out and come back and flag it as a guest. oh and i know this isn't the right place to ask this but why does it take so long for instructables to publish my questions? it takes like 5-10 hours each time.
