A sample comment that has been prefixed with "Private".
Where is the private flag stored?
The private tag is stored as a piece of comment metadata. Private Comments won’t hit the database for every comment (especially important on larger sites). One query is used to check the array of comment IDs against the commentmeta table for privacy.
