#8559: Comments on private posts appear in dashboard
 Reporter:  PeteHoliday  |       Owner:     
     Type:  defect       |      Status:  new
 Priority:  normal       |   Milestone:     
Component:  Comments     |     Version:  2.7
 Severity:  normal       |    Keywords:     
 Comments added to private posts show up in the dashboard and sidebar
 widgets regardless of whether or not the user has permission to see the
 private posts or (in the case of the sidebar widget) is even logged in.

 The sidebar widget just shows that the comment exists. In some situations,
 even the knowledge that the comment (and therefore the private post)
 exists can be detrimental. The dashboard problem is bigger, though, as the
 actual text of the comment is displayed.

 This behavior appears in both 2.7 RC1 and 2.7 RC2.
