moshe , http://drupal.org/node/18656 this does not seem to affect the
permissions of the comment/reply path.
I think the approach I have taken is blatantly simple: literally check
for access.

I believe I have found a bug.
If you goto http://www.etherpunk.com/comment/reply/180  (possibly NSFW)
it allows you to view the posting (while you don't have permission to
actually post, it still allows the page to get displayed).
I found this out by using awstats on my box and found that a hidden
page was getting hit fairly common that I really don't want getting
shown (well, it's on the web, I know... but... I'd rather have more
controlled access).
Does this belong in the comment section for not obeying TAC?
Can anyone confirm this on their site?

That's definitely something you need to take up with the comment module
guys.  It's not just taxonomy access control either, it's the core
node_access hooks in Drupal.  If they'll just check that before
displaying a node for reply, that'd fix it no problem.

filed under comment.module ... note that my big comment patch gets rid
of this page entirely (consolidates under comment/edit) so it might
make sense to apply my patch instead of fixing this.
