    Hi,

    how do i move the whois information in comment notification to higher userlevels?

    it's a bit of a problem if people responding to level 1 users are having their personal information sprayed all over the web

    TIA

    John

    Looks to me that it's in the wp-includes/comment-functions.php file, as function wp_notify_postauthor.

    I am not sure I understand who the "people" is and how (and why) they respond to level 1 users...

    Nobody is forced to make a comment. Also, the comment notification is sent to the blog admin, and not "sprayed all over the internet".

    When I had a multiple person blog, as admin I didn't get notifs on others posts. Notifs went to the post author.

    That's it,

    we want level 1's to be able to post drafts. when we approve the draft and put it on the site they're gettingthe notifier emails (which we didn't know would happen but we think it's extremely cool)

    but it's not fair to expect commenters to know that any old level 1 will get their IP details.

    if a blog is talking about anything serious then there's a chance of sharks in the water.

    Ok, so i commented out line 638 of wp-includes/comment-functions.php file

    $notify_message .= "Whois : http://ws.arin.net/cgi-bin/whois.pl?queryinput=$comment->comment_author_IP\r\n";

    It seems to work, but will that break anything?
