Last poster's e-mail leak in "e-mail" field (2 posts)

    I tried to reply to a comment when I wasn't logged on as admin and I noticed that the name, e-mail and url fields were auto-completed with the previous poster's data. I have tried it on several browsers and computers, just to eliminate a freak cookie issue, but the fields remained auto-completed every time.

    This is a huge privacy issue: name and website are obviously not a problem, but I don't want to leak the e-mail addresses of those who comment on my blog.

    The problem went away after disabling the plugin.

    Ajax Edit Comments in no way modifies the original comment cookies and default comment fields.

    I suspect a plugin or theme conflict. If possible, can you test locally with Ajax Edit comments installed and see if the same issue exists?
