Cancelling a cancelled comment

Hi. Just a small usability note on something that has tripped me up more than once.

When you choose "Cancel" to delete a comment, you are asked in a pop-up "Are you sure you want to clear this comment?"
The options given are "Cancel" and "OK."
More than once, I've chosen "cancel". . . because I do want to cancel the comment, and I pushed a button that said cancel, but the correct response is, of course, "OK." So, then, rinse and repeat.
I think it would more intuitive to simply make the options "Yes" and "No." No I don't want to clear the comment or yes I do, rather than "Cancel" to "cancel the cancellation" and "OK."

As I said . . . just a small suggestion.

Thanks for your time and attention.

    Ah, good point. I do see what you mean.
    It may be a fairly easy change, if the product team agrees with you. No guarantees, but I'll bring it up for their consideration.
    Thank you!
