Posting empty comments | /vanilla/post/comment

Hello, where can I find the PHP script that makes some checks on a comment body?
I need it because, it is possible to post empty comment in my forum. ( I am using plugin WYSIWYG (CLEditor) )
I don't want to implement the check "if the comment is empty" in a JavaScript, because it is easily bypassable.

    WYSIWYG editors (CLEditor in particular) leave HTML fragments behind (eg. <br> and empty <p> tags) so simply disabling CLEditor and using Button Bar instead will solve the problem. Point being that posting an empty body is not possible, but posting a body with only, say, a non-breaking space or a line break is.

    But just in case, where is the default check "if the comment is empty" is located?
