in thread Kill your "Comment" before you post since it's incorrect?

I don't know the code, but I'm 99% sure that starting a comment does not save anything into the server's database until you really submit it, so going back or closing the window is really enough ;-)

IIRC, technically speaking, it might reserve a row/node_id theoretically, and might save content into a session/cache table that gets emptied often, but none of this is matters as there is no "cancel" option

    It might, but it doesn't. For better or worse, when you are on the "Preview" page, the only copy of your post in the universe is in your browser's memory.
