I tried to upvote a COMMENT, and I got a little red error box (like those that say you can't vote for your own post) that said this comment is "not eligible for voting or flagging". I found it here, the all of the comments on Rex M's post. Is this a new feature? why aren't the comment eligible?

The comment was most likely deleted by the time you tried to vote for it.

that explains it – Gordon Gustafson Jul 30 '09 at 1:24

akf is close, but i think the actual issue in this case was that the answer the comment was attached to was deleted.

If i recall correctly, when you attempt to up-vote a deleted comment, you get a message telling you explicitly that the comment was deleted.

This is an example of a question migrated to meta for which comments (in the original site) are not eligible for voting or flagging.

Incidentally, I just gave the 200th upvote to a certain comment :)

Slightly different circumstances here, but nonetheless a good contribution for completeness. – Ian Elliott Jul 30 '09 at 13:26
