Unable to find an answer in the knowledge base. Is it possible to edit a comment once it's been submitted? If so, how?

    Nope. The best that can be done is to type a reply to the comment with what you should have said. The "Oops" is optional.

    OK, thanks for the reply. Will be a more diligent proofreader next time before hitting the submit button.

    Yes, that's it: once they're posted, comments are forever. Hence the oft-cited refrain, "The Preview button is your friend."
    Not trying to be snarky at all, just acknowledging that many many folks have expressed similar regret and chagrin.
    Thanks for asking, and welcome to the site.
