Description (last modified by josephscott)

r19296 made it so that loading the Edit Comment page returned an error message for comments marked as spam, specifically - http://core.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/19296/trunk/wp-admin/comment.php - which came in from #18340

What I'm suggesting is a revert of just http://core.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/19296/trunk/wp-admin/comment.php so that the edit action row link still isn't there, but if the Edit Comment page will still function for comments marked as spam.

The specific issue that came up for us is that the 'Akismet History' feature became effectively disabled for comments marked as spam because of r19296. The history details were still there, but users had no way of accessing the information for comments marked as spam.

Chatted with Nacin about this issue and he originated the suggestion to revert http://core.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/19296/trunk/wp-admin/comment.php as middle ground solution.
