I guess this is because the blog doesn't have access to your Geekzone login cookie, but there is some technical wizardry that could be done to get around it - basically if you qualify to have a GZ blog, you're not supposed to be required to confirm your email, but if you're on a GZ blog with a custom domain it does require it.

Correct. The cookies are tied to the *.geekzone.co.nz domain, and on custom domains these cookies won't work...

Can't work any magic then I guess? If it can't be done easily it can't be done easily and that's fine of course, but it'd be nice otherwise :)

It's a security thing. Servers can't issue cookies for other domains, only for its own domain and subdomains. We could implement an account subdomain on Geekzone and each custom blog page would have to redirect to a authentication page on Geekzone, which would then redirect back. This would immediately increase traffic and resource utilisation, plus slow down all browser usage when visiting any blog hosted here.

Not feasible, sorry.

Couldnt you just submit the comment to a geekzone address and then validate the cookie at that time?

Yep similar to how Facebook like or Google+ work except easier because you have control over the the server side of the blog too not just the client side/script.
