P.S. Is there any reason comments cannot be edited? What harm would there be in allowing users to edit their comments?

There are two things to consider:
- Bug comments are also sent out per email, possibly to mailing lists. The data cannot really be retracted from the web.
- I only see a private ip address that is not really a security issue.
I can remove the comment completely if you want but I don't see much use in that.

There are a couple of bugs dealing with editing bug comments : bug 80895, bug 668267
