Often I want to correct either a typo or an inaccurate statement I've made in a comment. But, after 5 minutes I can't.

I realize I can delete the comment and simply make a new comment, but wouldn't it be better if there wasn't a 5 minute limit on comment editing?

This was on Meta Stack Overflow, which means it won't be implemented here. If there arguments for or against this feature that you don't think are represented on that meta question, feel free to weigh in!

  • If the answer by Dennis on meta did little to persuade, I doubt I could do better. Thanks.
