add_filter('scn_notify_parent_author', '__return_false');

The title and content of the autoresponder can be personalized:

function custom_scn_autoresponder_subject($subject, $comment_object) {
    return $subject;
}
add_filter('scn_autoresponder_subject', 'custom_scn_autoresponder_subject', 10, 2);

function custom_scn_autoresponder_body($body, $comment_object) {
    return $body;
}
add_filter('scn_autoresponder_body', 'custom_scn_autoresponder_body', 10, 2);

function custom_scn_autoresponder_cap() {
    return 'edit_posts';
}
add_filter('scn_autoresponder_cap', 'custom_scn_autoresponder_cap');
