Do you edit your comments?

I edit my comments a lot! There are days I just can't seem to string a coherent sentence together. So everything I write I edit. Does it look suspicious when someone edit their comments? What do you think? Do you edit your comments?

Sometimes I do edit my comments when I realize it didn't make sense or if I made a typo.

I edit typos in my comments. It's one of those areas where I'm a bit OCD.

@THehorse I am diagnosed as OCD so maybe that is why I use Grammarly to check spelling and Grammar, then proofread and always end up editing!

Always. I find I've responded to the question and then have to go back and comment on the post. Sometimes my head just isn't attached. Then there are the stupid typos I make that I miss or I miss a word and the comment doesn't make sense, so yes, I'm always editing.

I only correct grammatical and spelling mistakes when I see them. I dislike when somebody modifies a comment to tell something different than in the original comment, especially when I had commented back.

Not suspicious, conscientious perhaps? An edited comment can put a discussion threadinto a different context, which can be confusing.

Yes I do - I can't bear seeing my mistakes, no matter how long ago I made them. Why would anyone think that suspicious? I certainly don't alter the meaning of my comments.

just that sometimes a person edit the comment to change what they said previously.. which can be annoying if you've made additional points addressing their original comments.

@Drosophila I see that - they should not do that. They should just make extra comments if they have someting else to add, or if they change their minds.

What do I think? Suspicious? Really? I'm surprized at the amount of paranoia on this site. For example, I deleted my history of posts for a reason I've yet to give except to say that's my decision. A member wrote a post specifically addressed on that issue stating that members that do that should not be trusted. Not be trusted? OMG. Everything you do will be questioned by someone else I guess. Use the site as you wish and enjoy your time here Wendy.

@Drosophila Perhaps comments can stay the way they are once someone replies if that is the case. If a post is wacko it can always be deleted and write a complete new one. Deletion is a form of edit, correct?

@Bluedoll after reading rest of the comments on this thread.. I can see why people would change the content of the comments, e.g. if it was perceived wrongly, and generated offense.

Several times actually. Sometimes I miss a word in hurry and then typos. And sometimes I forget to add something or something will occur to me later on.

I have been doing it most of the time. Aside from coherence, I usually have this problem in tense consistencies. If I will not edit what I found wrong in my response, the reader will not get my message clearly. I think it is better to edit it than leave it erroneous.
