Possible Duplicates:
Should I be able to cancel my up-vote on a comment?
Should downvoting be allowed on comments?

How come it is not possible to cancel a vote fore a comment?

Several times I have voted for a comment by mistake and wished I could cancel it.

  • Listen up, removing that notice from your question will get you into trouble. Please leave it intact and do not remove it. Aug 18, 2011 at 9:21

Because comments are 2nd class citizens around here. No rep is at stake so there's nothing to remove. The only thing votes on comments can do is 1) get you a (single) badge or 2) encourage or discourage behavior in comments. Because of that it's not a big deal if a couple miscast votes hang around the system.
