I wonder what happens if you try to edit a comment while someone is replying to it. Let's have a comment race between KT and Sefo.

I wanted to change my comment to read "I like garbage", but you posted your comment while I was editing mine and I got an error message:

KT, you jerk, I do *not* like garbage. Your comment originally said "I like puppies", but you edited it while I was writing my comment!

Oooo, I like the concept that you're not allowed to change your mind after someone else expresses an opinion!

Turtles make good Frisbees.

I'm more concerned that when you delete a comment to which someone has already replied, it can look like the reply was to the comment above yours.

Only to the careless reader who fails to notice the big honkin' "Deleted comment" in between.

Er, (Deleted post).

Hmm, what if someone deletes a comment while you're replying to it?

But it depends on the LJ -- some don't have that.

If you reply to a comment which is then deleted, yours isn't reparented and (Deleted post) shows up. If a comment is deleted and has no replies, nothing is displayed.

And I'm telling you that I've seen cases where "Deleted post" does not appear but the reply remains, indented, which makes it look like a reply to the previous undeleted comment.
