I don’t think there is, but neither do I think there should be. Think of it like having a conversation in real life. You can’t unsay something, all you can do is explain, apologize, or try to make it right. That’s all part of social interaction. It’s also part of the concept of preserving the record. Preserving history. Erasing history just doesn’t feel right in any context. It’s like, if you did it, you own it. Knowing comments can’t be erased (or that they WILL be screen-shotted anyway, like on Twitter) might help encourage people to be a little more thoughtful.

No, there isn’t. Sorry!
In some *extreme* situations, where someone had inadvertently posted personal information, say like their phone number or address, and wants it removed, I think SoH has actually removed the comment - but maybe once or twice in the 7 years I’ve been here. If that’s the situation, the only recourse is to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org explaining the situation (and giving your user name); and it’s better if it is sent from the email address in your Profile.
However, chances are slim that you’d hear anything back, because... that’s just the way it’s been for a good while now. But it couldn’t hurt to try...
If it’s just something you regret saying, or it’s full of grammar/spelling error, there’s no chance of getting that removed.
If it’s in one of your own polls, you can close the poll. The poll (and comment) is still there, but people would have to deliberately look for it, to see the comment.
