The current text of the Message delivered by the
Messaging system when a comment is moderated is as
follows: "A user has given a Interesting (+1)
moderation to your comment". Sometimes, this wording
is in error. Editors can moderate too, and they are
not "users". When $seclev is >99, the text should
read "An editor has given a Interesting (+1)
moderation to your comment".
It should (hopefully) be a one-line fix to check
$seclev when printing this text, though this is
certainly implementation dependent. I could probably
generate a patch if this is too time consuming.
Alternatively, the message could read "A user OR an
editor has..." though this would be less useful.
This fix would be especially useful to users as a
feedback mechanism to let them know when they are
getting out of line - they might have a chance to stop
their bad posting before they are secretly marked with
the $rtbl blacklist flag.
