      Description

      If an activity that uses comments is Frozen the comments that have been created can still be deleted by users.

      For example:

      1. As an administrator enable the content Freezing features.
      2. Create an database activity (Ensure Allow comments on entries is set to Yes)
      3. Use the image bank preset
      4. Add a new entry
      5. Create a comment on the new entry
      6. Freeze the database
      7. View the entry and expand the comments

      Actual result

      The comments appear with a delete button, that functions to delete the comment.

      Expected result

      The comments appear and have no delete button present.

      This also affects assignments (and presumably all plugins that use comments)
