Ok, It's probably better to get things right first time and not have to edit comments, but extra info may need to be added later for the benefit of other readers. So what's the point of the 5 minute limit? We can delete our own comments after the timeout and repost, however if other readers have posted in the meantime, a replacement comment cannot be slipped into place after the original readers question/comment.
Hmm..that is interesting, to say the least.
You can edit your comments any time in your account > comments. But I'm not sure whether they change position.
It's a pain also if comments have typos. They can't be corrected without deleting and reposting, with the new comment possibly way down the list and out of place.
I wonder do our comments go through the CrowdFlower service?

A relatively short editing time makes for a more natural conservation, I suppose. If your brain works rather slowly, a little more than five minutes would help. It would help me, lol.
I don't reckon they will be throwing resources at this kind of issue, though.
If someone replied to your post, and then you changed the post, it could lead to confusion.
Some people may say something inflammatory and then change something sweet, making it seem like the people who replied on the post overreacted. I have a feeling they save themselves lots of trouble this way.
Even if you delete the comment, it shows in earlier posts, if you change your mind. I've given up most forums. They are more of a source for people to argue, and I also find I'd like to add more info. In the end, it's wasting writing time. The forums are useful for getting answers on certain topics, but with so many changing rules, it is hard not to be misunderstood or getting varied answers.
Well yes, that's all true/. Maybe Editbot could be used for correcting grammar/typos?

I'm sure there are many reasons for and against responding to comments left by your readers. What do you think?
