Wordpress limit 'recent comments' to those that apply

Right now, when one of my contributors goes to their dashboard, they see a list of all the current comments, from any post.

Is there a way to limit what comments appear on a contributors dashboard so that they only see comments which have been added to posts that they wrote?

Or an other words, only display comments on the dashboard that they can edit/moderate,

Thanks,  Chris

    There's not an easy way to do it.  You can use Role Scoper or Capabilities Manager to not show that area of the Dashboard but the functionality itself is core.

    Thanks for the answer Jason, I wanted to see if anything else came in, but I guess no 'easy way to do it' is the answer :)
