#3504: Lock reviews from unsolicited input

 At the moment, we allow anyone to reply to a review.

 This is both good and bad, community input is always nice, but it does
 mean others can pile on to a review, if it's bad and they love the plugin,
 it isn't good for the reviewer now getting bashed, if the review is good
 but others dislike it, the same can happen (and does happen).

 It is also worth noting that we previously didn't have a way to declare
 support reps, so if you worked for a plugin or theme and were responding
 to reviews they had to be left open. This is no longer the case as we can
 now identify support reps (yes i know it's not implemented fully for
 themes at this time).

 Restricting reviews to input only from those who wrote the review, and
 representatives is therefore now a viable solution.
