This question already has an answer here:

I am aware of the "comment-timeout" which prevents the user to edit comments after 5 minutes edit window.

But, it doesn't prevent the user from deleting and posting a new comment with modified content after 5 minutes.

So, what's the use of that 5-minute comment editing timeout if users can delete and post modified comment, ?
