Now you do. >< HO HO HO! I originally said something vulgar, stupid, and rude there, but its since been edited away with this newfangled comment editing cap. –  bobobobo Dec 28 '09 at 0:05
    
@bobobobo aren't you missing a few bobos? –  SamB Apr 8 '10 at 20:16
    
No. No I am not, Sam I am. –  bobobobo Apr 9 '10 at 1:01

You can't. You can delete a comment and then add a new one, though.

Edit:

Just for the record, you CAN edit comments now (for a brief period after you submit it).

Can you preview your comment? –  spig Dec 11 '09 at 21:43

You can't see what it will look like when it's submitted, no. –  user27414 Dec 11 '09 at 21:44

I totally and /completely/ <strike>get</strike> understand where you're coming from, though, as I have <b>no idea</b> how these words <i>will</i> be formatted. –  user27414 Dec 11 '09 at 21:45
    
I've noticed code blocks in comments - is that just the standard markdown code block, or is that something else? –  spig Dec 11 '09 at 21:48

@spig, those would be formatted using backticks around the text. –  Brandon Dec 11 '09 at 21:49
    
For that you have to use two ` surrounding the code. –  perbert Dec 11 '09 at 22:18

Add a new comment with your corrections in it, wait 30 seconds, delete the old one.

(It sure would be nice if the comment restrictions were lightened a little for users with a certain reputation threshold... but then, I dream of a world of ponies and rainbows and waffles too.)

It's not possible. Yet.
