I gave some advice on a posting, and then realized that someone else had given the same advice before me. I saw that I had 60 minutes to edit my comment, but I couldn’t figure out how to delete it. Maybe I missed it, but I don’t see any delete button. So, is it possible to delete a comment either before or after that 60 minutes period has expired? Thank you.

Just edit, as far as I know.

Well, I guess that’s close enough. I just replaced everything I wrote with a dot. So, that appears as my comment. If I deleted everything, and then saved, my original comment returned. I think there may be a design flaw with the comment feature.

You are correct that there is no feature allowing you to delete a comment. Most people will go back and edit, just leaving something like “comment deleted”.

the above is correct
on a side note—having a duplicate piece of advice may help validate the information so I wouldn’t worry about it already have been said.

If i feel kinda crunchy from such a thing go back and state..”Great minds think alike.. ” and something like a praise to the person who beat you to the post.

Now how about not realizing a forum topic was over a year old and commenting like it was yesterday. LOL

I admit that I rarely look at the dates that something is posted.
My opinion: If I found it for the first time then there are others doing the same thing and all information is helpful for someone looking for information.
