A user should be able to edit their own comments to made typo fixes and to clarify points made in comments.

There may be some concerns about editing comments and that this may change the meaning of the thread and make comments which depend on the edited comment no longer accurate.

However, as long as subcribers are notified that a change has been made they have the option to respond by editing their own comments.

After a certain period of time, it might be a good idea to not allow editing of comments (say 15 days) to avoid re-opening issues that have been solved/are no longer relevant, etc. Alternatively, we may want to only allow editing of answers that are in a certain state (Open, for instance).
