Dear WordPress, should I be given the access to edit comments?

Dear WordPress, should I really be given the access to edit comments from other users?

I guess there may be the situation of some inappropriate comments submitted, but being able to edit them just seems to smack of censorship and a feature that can be used for evil rather than good. Maybe the decision should be made to just not publish those comments. The edit feature seems to give me the ability to create content and have it appear to come from another user.

For all readers out there, as long as the comment is relevant to the topic, professional, and doesn’t use profanity, be assured that the comment will be published and I will not edit it in any way.
