    A bad implemented feature.

    It shall be possible for the user to interact with the moderator by adding comments to the comments from the moderator.

    The affected user has the link to his question in the notifications.

    However, anybody who has the link has currently access to the question. SAP does not check any authority, whether the user is a moderator or the owner of the question.

    And even worse, they still let the deleted content appear in the activity stream of non-moderators

    I have a ticket KMM1028100V91703L0KM because replies to hidden comments are shown in the activities, but as you just proofed it is even worse, and I double checked and could even see the who question and all replies without even being logged in (in-private mode)

    There is a discussion regarding the same problem with example and a comment by Moshe, that he will look into it and reopen some bug ticket.

    I suppose that it makes sense to add the link here as well: https://blogs.sap.com/2017/05/19/answering-community-questions-list-of-issues/#comment-377357

    Currently, it is difficult to trace what has been reported and at which stage the fix is...
