Bug Description

Not sure if this is a bug or if I have misunderstood the guidelines. Apologies in advance if this is not a bug.

I read that I could hide or unhide a comment that I had made. I tried to test this by clicking on the Hide link for one of my comments. Later when I returned to the thread and refreshed the page, the comment had vanished and I could not see it. I therefore also could not unhide it. I was logged in the entire time.

This is the thread where it happened: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/network-manager-vpnc/+bug/1297849

The comment I hid was #75, which I can now no longer see even though I am the author of the comment, and I am logged in to Launchpad.

Indeed, only admins can see hidden comments even if they own them. I think we should always show hidden comments to their owners with the same presentation that admins get.

I think that would be good. If it's not possible for regular users to view/unhide their own hidden comments, then it might not be a bad idea to update the Help documentation accordingly (or even just in the interim, if there are plans to eventually make user unhiding possible). Just to avoid unintentional accidents like mine :)

It works! I can finally see my hidden comment and was able to unhide it at last. Thanks very much all!
