I think we should be able to delete our own comments any time not with an hour limit

I see that we now have an hour from the point of making a comment to be able to edit it. I am happy to see that. I feel that we should have the option of deleting a comment that we make at any time. If you take the issue that a comment is our own 'work' we should be able to remove it at a later date if we change our mind about it being there for public viewing or really for whatever reason. I cannot think of a reason not to allow us to delete our own comments.

Yes, it does seem a bit of a strange restriction, we should be able to delete our own comments at any time.

With one hour editing, all we are going to be able to fix is the glaring typo.

Sometimes, things change, new info comes to light, questions find answers, clarifications need making, heat of the moment shouts need subduing, I could go on - all these issues require editing or even deleting way beyond one hour.

As stated by BB above, the comments are our work and should remain under our control - forever, not just for an hour or a week.

I can't see a problem with 1 hour to edit. That is time enough to correct typos and something we wrote that doesn't read the way we meant. Maybe some blippers should be more controlled in their commenting if they write in haste then regret it later. We can't withdraw emails we write and send, and then regret. And if circumstances change we can add another comment to clarify.

I agree with blouseybrown.I have used comments in the past to give someone relevant information about an image that I didn't want there for ever. I have also been asked by someone else to delete a comment that I had thought was OK but turned out not to be.

I echo the request that we be able to edit comments at any time, like we used to be able to, for all the reasons given already.
