how do I let a certain user comment without moderation in a blog?

    I have a blog where every comment has to be approved by an administrator. I have to keep it this way.

    Now, I would like to «whitelist» a certain user, for I am sure I would like to approve every comment of him.

    Is there a way to do that and allow him to comment without having to moderate every time?

    Am I supposed to add him to the blog authors? But I do not want him to be able to post new posts, just comment without moderation.

    There should be a sort of whitelist where you can add user for which wordpress has to skip moderation, but I did not find it.

    Thank you.
