Possibility to remove\edit comments in discussion

Is it possible to edit\remove comments which was made by other users in discussions? Cannot find any ability to do so even with system admin account....

Hi Dmitry,

Correct, only user himself might delete or edit his comment. We don't have a special permission for that, so it's a hardcoded.

If you don't mind, please elaborate a scenario when admin should have an access to modify someone comments? 

Thank you in advance.

Hi Artem,

The use case is simple - moderation.

Consider if employe for some reason before his dismission add some "bad" comments. In this case system admin cannot cleanup such comments. Of course he can ban user and change the password and then login on behalf of this user and clean comments. But this is a lot things to do... Permission to super user with grants to edit\delete comment will be much easy to proceed with.
