Lock comments so they can only be edited by author of the comment

Please, please make it so that comments can no longer be edited by another person, students are able to revise comments made by their teacher. This is not good for school or business because a screen shot could easily implicate someone for wrong-doing. The edited comment shows the original author and no indication that there was a new person editing that comment. Also the comment history is not available to view to track any of the changed made to a comment box. Please fix this so we are able to continue using collaborative documents. This is a deal breaker.

        This is extremely important. Only the author of the comment should be able to edit a comment. As a school district we would like to use the commenting feature when providing feedback to students. Unfortunately, other students can edit the teacher's comments, which does not work for our staff.

        Why is this even possible? It just doesn’t make sense to allow someone to edit another persons comment. Please fix this. Our district can’t use your product otherwise.
