What is meta?
Here's how it works:

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I don't find this clear:

Left 10 comments with score of 5 or more

I would prefer:

Left 10 comments, each with a score of 5 or more

Copy paste error that cost you 3 downvotes.. I always read twice my question after posting it to make sure I don't have such typos. Anyhow, minor change but can't see any harm doing it. – Shadow Wizard Aug 28 '11 at 8:24

I think that is rather improbable 5 is the total score of the 10 comments, considering that the badge is a silver badge; that would mean a score of at least 0.5 for each comment.
Considering also that there is a bronze badge for leaving 10 comments, it's more probable the score is referring to the score for each comment.

There is no need to change the description; many of the badge descriptions are intentionally open to more than one interpretation. The reason is that badges should be a surprise, not something you exactly know when you get them. (At least this is the description somebody else used for the badges.)

Jeff Atwood, in A Bevy of New Badges says:

Badges are supposed to be a little mysterious; you should view them as minor puzzles with obvious hints.

When one realizes that "with score 5 or more" doesn't refer to total score, one will slap one's own face with one's hand and say to oneself, "Aw, shucks", and move on. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Aug 28 '11 at 12:53

Do you have a reference to many of the badge descriptions are intentionally open to more than one interpretation? It's the first I've heard of it. – Tshepang Aug 28 '11 at 17:08
    
@Tshepang The reference to that would be the description of many badges; if you read many of them, it's not immediately clear when you get those badges. – kiamlaluno Aug 28 '11 at 23:59

@kiamlaluno: But that does not necessarily mean they were intentionally meant to be vague. – Tshepang Aug 29 '11 at 7:21
    
@Tshepang That is not what Jeff seems to think. – kiamlaluno Aug 29 '11 at 7:23
    
@kiamlaluno: Oh, I didn't notice that you did. I didn't get a notification :) – Tshepang Aug 29 '11 at 8:08
