Nice Plugin, but...
By , for WP 4.4

This plugin looked like it would do exactly what I needed it to do. However, I don't think in works in MultiSite.

I installed it and activated it at the site level, not the network level. I was logged in as Super Admin and once it was installed I was demoted to Comments only. All menu items vanished.

Too bad.

To unravel:
Delete the plugin
Go to plugins menu on the site -- to see the alert message and plugin deactivation
Go into raw database: wp_99_options table (where 99 is your site id number)
edit the option value for option_name="wp_99_user_roles"
remove the data between and inclusive of s:9:"moderator";a:2:{...}}
change a:6:{ to a:5:{ at the beginning of the serialized data blob

Good luck

P.S. a workable alternative is the "Comment Moderator" plugin Version 1.3.1 | By 99 Robots. I installed it and tried it out and within 30 minutes I had it fully configured, tested and put into use.

Crashed my site
By , for WP 4.1.1

Thanks! I installed this "Moderator Role" in my site so I can make the Moderator user actually moderate. I installed this plugin as the site administrator and now my administrator can only see comments!
The Dashboard has dissapeared! How the hell am I supposed to get all this back now? I have been writing this site all damn day and its ruined! Thanks!

Still works after minor edit
By , for WP 3.8

Works as it should.
(WP 3.8 / PHP 5.4.16 / MySQL 5.6.12) Just needed to edit (remove) 1 character at line 61 else it won't let it activate.

Change at that line 61 &$wp_admin_bar into $wp_admin_bar (remove the ampersand) and it works flawwless.
If dev would just change that the plugin is again up to date and usefull for all :)
