Comment (by dd32):

 Replying to [comment:2 megphillips91]:
 > I understand your concern. However, a commenter could not make an
 informed decision on whether or not to delete a comment without the
 context of the post itself. For instance, if I commented "that bow is
 soooo awesome", I could be referring to the bow of a boat or the ribbon in
 my niece's hair.

 To provide the proper context for that, you'd use `WP_Comment_Query` to
 pull a list of comments, and then display the post associated with those
 comments in-line. `get_post( $comment->comment_post_ID )`.  Querying posts
 by comment author email is a very niche use-case that would serve very
 little audience that `WP_Comment_Query` doesn't already offer a viable
 option for.
