[wp-hackers] Comment Moderation UI limited for the Author

More clarification needed:

Do you want non-authenticated users to be able to see the comments on
each post? Do you want the different authors to be able to read the
comments on each post, but just not be able to see them in the comments
moderation admin page?

If the answers are both yes, and the permissions are already correct
(i.e. the authors already cannot moderate comments that do not belong to
their posts), but the issue is just with visibility in the admin screen,
it should be fairly easy to hack or plugin.

Subject: [wp-hackers] Comment Moderation UI limited for the Author

You're right, there's some major clarification needed. Especially since
formed the question around comment moderation instead of the comment
moderation UI (which was the original intent of the submission, even
I confused the topic--and myself--when I brought in role capabilities).

Here it goes again:

Anyone have recommendations on how to limit the comment moderation [page
for] the post author, [so they don't see comments across the entire

Basically, we will have a post that only the author could manage
[default author level]. Authors with a single post attributed to them,
should be able to edit the comments attributed to their posts but no-one
else's (default "author" role) [nor should they be able to see other
comments within their comment moderation page].

We're running into the same issue with Media management but are handling
that much differently.
