Delete button appears for comments by deactivated users.

Hi all, I was just reading a sentence discussion and I saw a comment by "[deactivated user]". There was a delete button! I clicked it, and the comment disappeared. At first I thought I had actually deleted it, but after refreshing, it was back. The post request returns:

{"response":"user not allowed to delete someone else's comment."}

Few! Still, it's clearly a glitch.

Edit: Perhaps I will report it with their interface.

Hi!

It seems to be fixed.
I was also able (while not logged in, of course) to see the "Edit" and "Delete" button on posts by "Deactivated users" one hour ago but not anymore.

I deleted the comment too! Seems like we're all becoming moderators!

Yes, I think it will be best to report it! :D
