I recently flagged 19 comments as too chatty or obsolete and have had all of them declined.

The comments were of the following nature:

  • +1 for the explanation.
  • I guess you mean the shift key? Also, link-only answers are not very helpful if the link ever stops working!
    @LarsEbert OMG what a spell error :)
    Much better now +1
  • Thank you, finally the problem is solved.
    +1. Excellent answer!

Why were these comment flags declined? The comments are completely superfluous and as comments are ephemeral why should these comments not be removed?

My post flag accuracy is over 98% with almost 1500 flags, but my comment flag accuracy is only 35% with only 80 flags.

Why are my comment flags declined? At one point, I had a few flags declined for comments on the same post, which were then removed anyway later.


Primarily because I didn't pay attention and hit the "dismiss" link instead of the "delete" link. Sorry about that.

  • Ah, thanks for the explanation. Should I re-flag the comments? – grg Apr 7 '15 at 16:56
  • If you want to :-) – nohillside Apr 7 '15 at 17:37
