allow alb owners to DEL comments of pics in their albums

Currently only the administrator has the right to remove comments straight from the page it is shown. Users have to go to edit pics and "Delete comments". However, this deletes ALL comments for that picture.

One user suggested the function of users being able to delete SINGLE comments from photos in their own albums, similar to the way they can edit or delete their own comments. I know admins already have this right, but I think users should only be allowed to delete, not edit.

another thing is that non-logged in users can post comments under any name they choose, even names of existing users. so for example a user could use the nickname "oasis" to post a comment. Maybe this should be restricted so they can only use nicknames that have not been registered (in case for example if someone posts bad comments using someone else's account name)

A general algorithm to start the theoretical discussion:

Select from users where name equals comment name.

if result returns true - found {

refresh comments page with notice telling user to select another name

}
