In this answer, I posted a comment (the 4th one in the comments list).

I then made an edit, but I wanted to make sure that people see that there is an edit, so I wrote at the end of my comment [edit] and the rest of the message.

When I submitted the changes to my comment, I noticed that my [edit] just got converted to a link to the question edition page.

Is that a bug or feature ?

this is a test, edit link: edit – Doorknob Feb 1 '13 at 13:13
That is mentioned in the FAQ – hims056 Feb 1 '13 at 13:19
You don't need to alert people you made an edit to a comment. The little pencil icon after the time of posting does that for you. – Al E. Feb 1 '13 at 13:46
@AlEverett I know that, but in this case I wanted to indicate the first text and the edited part. – j0k Feb 1 '13 at 13:48

@j0k And you don't need to do that. They can look at the revision history if they want to know. – Servy Feb 1 '13 at 15:22
@Servy Where can I find the link to see the comment revision history? – j0k Feb 1 '13 at 15:23
@j0k Oh, I thought you were referring to an edit in the post, nvm then. – Servy Feb 1 '13 at 15:25

It's a feature: Add data.SE style "magic links" to comments.
