Here is another way to fool :) the system: (don't take this too harsh)
If your comment is older than 5 minutes,
- do as if you didn't see it.
- Hit the edit button. It will prevent it hadn't noticed too, that you're going to start an action you'll never end regularly.
- Don't hit
save, but mark your comment, Ctrl c (copy to clipboard). Else you get punished by the orange
comments may only be edited for 5 minutes(click on this box to dismiss)-box.
- Create new comment. Insert the whole thing. Ctrl v
- Now delete the old version.
- Mission accomplished.
Alternative version I like to suggest, instead of this complicated gymnastics:
If no comment has been added in between, allow edits even years later. Maybe issue new informations, if the comment adresses special @persons.
Of course only, if no new comment has been added meanwhile.
