How to allow users to edit their comments in Drupal 7

Users may like to leave comments on your pages in order to express or share their opinions and thoughts with you. At times, they may make mistakes and need or want to edit their comment. This is not enabled by default. You may want to enable it because many users will simply add another comment with their corrected information. This can cause clutter over time. Enabling the ability for users to edit their comments in Drupal 7 can be done by performing the following:
