eliminate confusion on Recent Comments section of My LJ

Short, concise description of the idea
Make it clearer which comment the action icons on Recent Comments section of My LJ are referring to.

Full description of the idea
In normal comments (i.e. as seen under an entry), the action icons are at the top of each comment, in the same colored box as the name, date, and title.

However, in My LJ, the icons are at the bottom, and not obviously associated with the comment they are referring to. It's too easy to mistakenly delete or unscreen the comment above the one you intended to.

An ordered list of benefits
  • A more idiot-proof UI, which means less frustration and confusion, and fewer questions and complaints.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Making changes is a pain in the ass.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • One possible solution would be to make the Recent Comments look more like the comments as they appear on the journal entry.
