Never realized a User couldn't edit their own comments before.  Good
reasoning, Jeff.  Should make sure all email respondents realize this.  I
don't even see the delete?  I thought at least that existed?  We've
suggested/asked that users edit/delete their comments in the past?  Or am I
way in left field here?

| also an excellent suggestion.  however, given a preview option, i don't
| think it'd be necessary to offer edit functionality.  can you imagine a
| posting an inflammatory comment, getting a response within the 4 hour
| time-limit, then editing their comment to make the person responding look
| like an idiot?  maybe you can't, but i can.  i don't think i wanna give
| people that opportunity.
