That's it... I can't delete any comments I post; even though the button is there.

Update: It doesn't work anywhere on Writers' and I can't try it anywhere else, unfortunately.

The "delete" link is there but it does nothing when I click it. That's true for all comments and answers I post.

Alright, how does that not conform to quality standards? It keeps telling me so with no links to solution so I'm guessing it's a character length issue. With this note in the body, it should post...

Update: It's a length issue... Any thoughts? Beside the original question?

    I just posted and deleted a comment here. Where is the comment that you can't delete? Commented Apr 25, 2012 at 15:04
  • Were you able to delete comments before this? On both writers and meta.writers? How about on other Stack Exchange sites? Commented Apr 25, 2012 at 17:12
  • Hello! Are you still experiencing this?

  • @Aarthi, No. It got sorted out around late May '12. Should I edit to make this clear?

Well, no one was able to reproduce this (at least, no one who commented) and you mentioned that it sorted itself out for you in May of this year. I'm marking this status-norepro and figuring that you just came across a tiny hiccup in the system.
