The new functionality doc:

http://help.smartsheet.com/articles/521892-adding-discussions

says this

Other actions with comments require additional permissions:

  • To edit a comment, you must be the author of the comment.
  • To delete a comment, you must be the author of the comment.

Neither of these appear to be true because the very next statement is:

 

Note that the sheet Owner or anyone with Admin permissions to the sheet can delete any comment or comment thread.

 

Correction: 

Testing confirms that an Admin can edit/delete any comment or thread.

To edit or delete a comment, you must be the author, owner of the sheet, or have Admin privileges.

I thought I was able edit comments with Admin/Owner users but can not reproduce again.
