Is there any provision of deletion of any comment?

Today I have posted an answer to a comment to one of posts which was prepared for another comment. The technique I use here is that I always prepare either any article or any comment or any answer to any comment to my post on Microsoft Word and then ‘copy-paste’ it. Due to extreme carelessness, I posted one answer to one of my comments on the wrong place. As soon as I came to the realization that it has been posted on the wrong place, I tried a lot to delete it. But I could not and the ultimate result was that I was simultaneously preparing another article by using the same process of ‘copy-paste’, I forgot it and again did the same mistake. A portion of the article I was simultaneously preparing was posted as answer to another comment to the same article of mine. It was a gross negligence on my part and I need your help to get rid of those wrongly placed answers.

it would be good to be able to edit or delete our own comments - I made a similar error to yours yesterday

Also experience typing the wrong spelling of a word but I cannot correct it when I wanted to. Arthuchappell is right - I hope there will be an edit feature for comments.

Most of my mistakes in commenting are misspelled or missing words. I think we can not delete or edit our comments. We can issue an errata at most.

I would use the contact at the top of the page and asked the owner to help you with this, I'm sure they can fix it for you. I do love the way we compose posts on here, but an edit feature for comments would be appreciated also.

Use the Contact form above with the links to the offending comments so that we can delete them.

In the future, I would recommend to not copy and paste comments (I honestly don't see the point, but to each their own) and carefully re-read your articles prior to posting. You can edit your own articles though - just not polls.

In the future, you'll have the option to edit your comments.
