 But a subscriber can delete an activity he posted or a reply he posted to
 an activity.
 In 5130.03, if a subscriber deletes a reply he made on a post activity, it
 will delete the comment (or trash it in a near future).

 Ugh. Very good catch, imath. We can't allow for this kind of privilege
 escalation, even if it's for content that the user created.

 r-a-y, can we address this in a fairly cheap way? I'm thinking: in
 `bp_blogs_sync_delete_from_activity_comment()`, just after you
 switch_to_blog(), do a current_user_can() check. If it fails, just bail.
 The activity item will still be deleted, but the blog comments will
 remain. Doesn't really give any user feedback, but this seems like a case
 where it's not really necessary. What do you think?
