It's unbelievable there's even been people arguing this shouldn't be done. The only reason why I thought this feature could not exist was laziness.

Not being able to edit ANYTHING that one posts ANYWHERE is simply ridiculous.
Typos are in themselves a more than sufficient reason.

On other sites you can at least delete and rewrite a comment (which is already annoying, and a bad solution with a number of drawbacks), but here you can't EVEN do that. (to test which, by the way, I had to write a comment that now I can't delete).

Have the original post remain as is, and below it the edited version?!?!?!?!?!?!? OMG That would be awkward, dirty, nosiy and nasty. For god's sake, NO. Just simply plainly allow to edit a comment the same way you can edit the original report (and any post in any forum).
Simply put a notice at the end of it that it has been edited; and maybe let people with enough privileges (and the author of the comment) see the edit history, that would be all. I don't think there's anything to invent here.

And please forgive the typos this comment will certainly have.

P.S. I think importance should be increased, it's a pretty embarassing lack of a feature.
