Several times I have voted for a comment by mistake and wished I could cancel it.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Listen up, removing that notice from your question will get you into trouble. Please leave it intact and do not remove it. –  Time Traveling Bobby Aug 18 '11 at 9:21

Because comments are 2nd class citizens around here. No rep is at stake so there's nothing to remove. The only thing votes on comments can do is 1) get you a (single) badge or 2) encourage or discourage behavior in comments. Because of that it's not a big deal if a couple miscast votes hang around the system.
