[resolved] Prevent all from seeing commenters' info (4 posts)

    Eeeek!

    One of my "contributor" level users notified me they can see all commenters' email and IP addresses!

    I know I verified several months back that contributors and authors could NOT see commenters' information. Do you know if this change resulted from a WP version upgrade?

    I have been using the Role Manager Plugin 1.4.4, which is probably the most needed WP plugin that is also the biggest wretch to work with, try to make changes on it and it upchucks errors.

    Codex says "edit_posts" capability carries "Manage->Comments" with it as part and parcel?!?! It says something about only being able to edit own posts (do they mean own comments?), which would be ideal to let folks edit their own comments, however I logged into a user at contributor level and nope they can see everyone else's info!

    This exact question has been brought up before and not answered adequately.

    This never got a single response:

    This indicates a data file was being trashed?

    Do you think I should take all users down to lowest level, deactivate and delete role manager plugin, re-upload and activate it again? Or is there something else they meant?

    What would you do?

    Anyone have a guess how to fix this?

    Anyone know what release version this was changed in?

    Anyone know how to configure Role Manager to fix this issue?

    Anyone know where in the core code I can change this myself?
