You do have the ability to edit your own comment. After you post, there is a little pencil icon in the top right corner of the comment. Clicking this will give you the option of either editing or deleting your comment.

I just discovered an issue in the computer code (also known as a bug) which you may be referring to where if your comment has been replied to, posting an edit to your comment after previewing it creates a new comment instead of editing the existing comment.

I will attempt to fix it and will reply here when I finish.

Okay, the bug I found was actually probably way rarer than I thought so it is unlikely that many people if any encountered it, though I apologize if it effected you.

Basically, it used to be if you edited a comment that was a reply to another comment, and then hit preview, the preview would show up twice, once in the correct place, and another time as a new comment replying to the original comment. This has been fixed now.
