Mass-deletion of own comments in another journal

Title
Mass-deletion of own comments in another journal

Short, concise description of the idea
Provide a way, similar to the mass privacy change for entries, to delete all comments you left in another journal, including those on entries you no longer have access to.

Full description of the idea
Currently, it is very hard and tedious to delete your own comments in someone else's journal, and (for most users) nearly impossible if you don't have the notification emails for all comments and you no longer have access to the entries. The alternative, asking the journal owner or a community maintainer to delete all your comments, is sometimes impractical, because they might not be willing, or just not have the time to spare.

This would fix that shortcoming. The user interface would be similar to the mass privacy change, and it could use a similar background task to perform the actual deletion. To limit the server load, it could similarly be opened to paid (or paid and plus) accounts only.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Easier to delete your own comments in a journal.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Comment deletion can't be undone, which could cause severe problems if an account is hijacked or compromised.
  • May cause massive server load in some cases.
  • Some journal owners or comunity maintainers may see it as vandalism, or as undesirable for other reasons.
