    My site allows comments from users if they provide an email address.

    Just noticed that registered contributors can view comments, in admin including the email addresses of other users and commenters. I do not want these email addreses to be shown to anyone but the admin. Suggestions?

    OK, I found a fix to this in a support thread by hacking the menu.php file and not allowing access to the "manage" menu below a certain security level. Not a great fix since it hacks a core file but I guess I can live with it.

    when I edit the menu.php file, it works to stop users from seeing the email addresses of commentors but I get a header, pluggable error when editing user data.

    Can anyone help me out of this quandry?
