Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Trying to delete your own comment from a locked post doesn't work, but there is no indication that it failed. No error message, and the comment even disappears, but of course it's back when you refresh the page.

The server returns this:

{"Success":false,"Warning":false,"NewScore":0,"Message":"This comment is not eligible for voting or flagging","Refresh":false}

… but the UI seems to ignore it.

Looks like the same root issue as deletion rate-limiting (though the code's changed around a bit), and now there's a .done() callback that removes the comment irrespective of the response. – Tim Stone Jun 6 '12 at 18:15
OH, it was silent but not deadly...hmm – Mark Schultheiss Jun 6 '12 at 20:33

As Tim Stone notes correctly, the UI removed the comment regardless of whether deletion was successful or not. That's fixed in the next build.
