I have enable commenting on sharepoint online modern pages, as follow:-

enter image description here

Now we have a SharePoint online classic team site, and on modern pages users are adding comments and replies on the comments, as follow:-

enter image description here

But the problem is that users are able to delete comments and replies which were created by other users. so can we prevent this? and to only allow users to delete their own comments and replies (comments and replies created by the end user)?? i search for any option to control this but failed to do so.. also if someone delete a comment, then this comment will not get moved to the Recycle Bin, so we are unable to know if comments and replies are being removed by users, seems things are not controlled...

Thanks in advance for any help.

    It's not possible to do so as far as i know. Comments are stored using guid of the pages. I couldn't find out where they are stored. but what you are trying to do is not possible. – harshal gite Nov 5 '18 at 18:07
  • @harshalgite i do not know how sharepoint want us to work on modern pages .. i mean it does not make any sense to allow any user to delete any comment from a modern page.. also those comments are not going to be moved to the recycle bin once deleted.. Plus if the creator of the page, set an alert on the page, and someone delete his comment or others comments, then no user notification will be sent... if i want to implement a feature so no one can use it and no one will be happy with it,, i would provide a function similar to sharepoint modern pages comments!! – SharePoint TestDev Nov 5 '18 at 19:04
  • Why dont you use the classic newsletter on a classic page? – harshal gite Nov 5 '18 at 19:06
  • @harshal gite we have modern pages, and we want users to add comment on the modern pages... so using the classic discussion board will not be helpful... – SharePoint TestDev Nov 5 '18 at 19:09
  • Then thats the way it is im afraid! – harshal gite Nov 5 '18 at 19:10
