The way comments are currently implemented a moderator edit of a third person comment constitutes an infringement of the CC-BY-SA 3.0 license under which such comment was published. In particular section 4c(iv):
and (iv) , consistent with Ssection 3(b), in the case of an Adaptation, a credit identifying the use of the Work in the Adaptation (e.g., "French translation of the Work by Original Author," or "Screenplay based on original Work by Original Author"). The credit required by this Section 4(c) may be implemented in any reasonable manner; provided, however, that in the case of a Adaptation or Collection, at a minimum such credit will appear, if a credit for all contributing authors of the Adaptation or Collection appears, then as part of these credits and in a manner at least as prominent as the credits for the other contributing authors. For the avoidance of doubt, You may only use the credit required by this Section for the purpose of attribution in the manner set out above and, by exercising Your rights under this License, You may not implicitly or explicitly assert or imply any connection with, sponsorship or endorsement by the Original Author, Licensor and/or Attribution Parties, as appropriate, of You or Your use of the Work, without the separate, express prior written permission of the Original Author, Licensor and/or Attribution Parties.
Assuming that said comment is eligible for being copyrighted, which is not always the case.
When a moderator edits another person's comment only the name of the original author appears. It is noted that the comment has been edited but that is indistinguishable from a comment which has only been edited by the original author.
It would be fine if the comment read "Comment based on original Work by Original Author" as the license states. Indeed this would be an acceptable alternative to disabling comments.
CC-BY-SA 3.0 states a way in which credit for adaptations my be given and also states that " You may only use the credit required by this Section for the purpose of attribution in the manner set out above". So in that manner and only that manner. And it is quite reasonable for the license to be like this, because with the current wording of comments edited by moderators any random user finding such comment will likely erroneously believe that it was authored only by the original poster.
This is not a duplicate of Is proper attribution given when a moderator edits someone's comment?. That other question is concerned about the rights of the comment's editor while this question is concerned about the original author of the comment.
