Librarians able to search for all comments by a user

Registered by Gerald on 2011-02-15

A function that would allow a librarian to search for all comments by a specific user, and possibly delete them all in a single function.
For cases where a user creates an account, and then uses clip comments to spam the artists and OCAL with adverts, or similar non-clip related comments. If many are made by one user, quick search and delete would be a fast way to clean it up.

Ok, I've made a first step towards dealing with spam and other troublesome comments.
Generic search tool for comments.

    * Will search username and comment for [query]
    * Will display comments that have [query] in a table.
    * Pagination is broken due to another bug, but pagination IS actually activated on this search.
    * Results are limited to 50 per page.
    * Only Librarians can see / use this page.
    * At this stage, this will only display, but I plan on making user actions for when a librarian needs to hide the comment or to edit the comments if need be.
    * It's probably would benefit from some css styling.
    * Footer screwed up the page, so I removed it from showing up on this page.

Pity I can't do /search/comments, instead of creating an entirely different url (/searchcomments). When I placed this page under /search/comments, the cliparts matching [query] also displayed in the standard search view, which is not what I wanted. Kill URL's search didn't work. It works downline, but not upline.

There is currently no tool to edit / hide comments. I'll work on that next.
