How do comment voting and flagging work?

I was curious about flagging on SO. I went to flag a comment and it said i had 5 left. Is that 5 per day, week or forever? Also, do users with more rep get more flags?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@Bob (edited comment)- maybe not quite a dupe as it talks about comment flagging where as the title isn't comment specific, just the example of a comment. page also has conflicting information with the FAQ – davidsleeps Jan 3 '12 at 2:20
@davidsleeps I still feel that this question is adequately answered by our existing FAQ questions. – John Jan 3 '12 at 2:47
@Bob agreed (as evidenced by the fact that my answer is a link and excerpt from the FAQ). – davidsleeps Jan 3 '12 at 2:59

See Are there any voting limits? which contains this section related to flagging:

  • At 15 or more reputation, at least 5 spam/offensive flag votes per day per user
    • One additional spam/offensive flag vote per 2000 reputation or 20 flag-weight, to a maximum of 100 spam/offensive votes
  • At 10k reputation, at least 5 delete votes per day per user
    • One additional delete vote per 1000 reputation, to a maximum of 30 delete votes
  • At least 10 general moderator flag votes per day per user with 15 or more reputation.
    • One additional general moderator flag vote per every 1k of reputation or 20 flag-weight, up to a maximum of 100.
