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
