HTTP DELETE

Deletes a comment from a draft reply.

This will remove the comment from the reply. This cannot be undone.

Only comments on draft replies can be deleted. Attempting to delete a published comment will return a Permission Denied error.

Instead of a payload response, this will return HTTP 204 No Content.

HTTP GET

Returns information on a reply to a comment.

Much of the information will be identical to that of the comment being replied to. For example, the range of lines. This is because the reply to the comment is meant to cover the exact same code that the original comment covers.
