Description

Greetings. I think this is a serious privacy issue which should be fixed asap. I want to give contributor rights for all users on my blog to post for promoting participation on the blog. But when I give contributor rights, they can even see the titles of the pending unapproved posts and comments in their admin. I think such a capability should only be given to moderator and above or even authors and above but not to contributors as contributors don't want to know about how the blog is moderated or which spam comments are rejected etc. Kindly do fix this in 2.8.5. Thank you.
