So here is the deal.

Being so late at night, I foolishly made a comment to my own answer that was supposed to go with the question. Great, I just delete it and add it to the question instead - which worked fine.

Now I realized the comment doesn't make any sense and I go to delete it again. This time, it doesn't delete. It just asks me if I want to delete and then nothing beyond that. I try to edit the comment instead, and a message informs me

an error occured during comment submission

I decided to wait a good 5 minutes in case I tripped some sort of flood protection, and I am stilling running into this issue. I guess I might still be waiting for an anti-flood mechanism?

What browser? I remember an intermittent issue similar to that on Chrome. –  Bart Feb 9 '12 at 7:47
Flag the comment and let one of our diamond mods know what you would like to do about that comment. –  Lix Feb 9 '12 at 8:27
Did you refresh the page and try to delete again? –  ChrisF Feb 9 '12 at 9:25
What happened exactly? You deleted the comment, it was gone, then appeared again after refresh? –  Shadow Wizard Feb 9 '12 at 9:58
Well thankfully a mod deleted it, but that also means I can't do more testing. I did try a gauntlet of different browsers. As for the behavior? I simply pressed the delete x, I got prompted by JavaScript but then nothing happened. No feedback –  Resorath Feb 9 '12 at 16:14
Hmm, strange... in our server logs, I see the comments being created on the question, but I don't see any deletion attempts. Checking the client script to see if anything looks amiss. –  Jarrod Dixon Feb 10 '12 at 3:46
After you created the first comment ("Actually now that I think about it...") on the question, I see you visited the home page a few times and then returned to the question. Was this in the same browser tab? Trying to determine if you reloaded the question again before trying to delete the comment. –  Jarrod Dixon Feb 10 '12 at 3:55
@JarrodDixon Most likely a new session. –  Resorath Feb 10 '12 at 4:22
