 If there are replies (by authors) to reviews, they are not visible at the
 review overview page that is accessable from the plugin page. E.g Open
 this review page: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-staging/#reviews

 The second review with the title "''Cool idea, premium is OK but free
 version is useless''" has a reply by the author but it is not visible to
 an interested user.

 Especially if there are reviews that cross the line or contain false
 claims it would only be fair to give readers the ability to see what a
 author responded to a particular (bad) review.

 If there is an (author) answer, it would be great to have a link to the
 corresponding answer, like in this screen design:


 This could also reduce author requests for review deletion/edits so it
 will have a benefit for the review mods as well and not for the plugins
 devs only.
