Do you get points/reputation for upvoted comments?

I know this is a question I should be able to find easily, but I can't seem to find it by searching here or skimming the faq. Thanks

No reputation of any kind is earned or lost from comment votes.

There is, however, a badge.

Is that written somewhere? If so can you provide a link? Thanks – Dusty Jul 31 '09 at 21:57
Sure - updated. – Shog9 Jul 31 '09 at 21:59
I've always sort of hated pundits, really... – mmyers Jul 31 '09 at 21:59
Thanks. Not only did I upvote your answer, but I upvoted your comment. haha – Dusty Jul 31 '09 at 22:01
I'm on a personal mission to try and make you a pundit at every opportunity – Ian Elliott Jul 31 '09 at 22:01
Everybody upvote mmyers' comments - let's make him a pundit here on MSO as well... – Shog9 Jul 31 '09 at 22:03
Don't forget about me Shog9. I don't mind having the pundit badge. :) – Dusty Jul 31 '09 at 22:04

4 easy steps to become a pundit:

  1. Camp out on “fun” questions (but only comment on them).
  2. Be mildly amusing.
  3. ???
  4. Pundit!

Uh, wait. A pundit is someone who makes bad puns, right?

Wikied because a) it doesn't answer the question, b) I already posted it as a comment to the blog, and c) it was so bad then that I had to slap myself after I posted it. – mmyers Jul 31 '09 at 22:20
I completely agree with your comment! keep up the good work – Ian Elliott Jul 31 '09 at 22:48
You mean I should keep slapping myself? (Ow!) – mmyers Aug 1 '09 at 5:01
>Uh, wait. A pundit is someone who makes bad puns, right? - No, that’s a pun twit. – Synetech Feb 21 '11 at 18:03
This is a fine meta-answer-comment-combo by mmyers: Stating a hypothesis in the answer and proving it right with the comment ;) – das_weezul Apr 12 '11 at 13:35
