Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

So, I found the list of posts I have flagged, in the 'flag-summary', but while it lists '# comment(s) flagged', it doesn't show the comment (or a link to it). Is there a reason for that? Or am I looking in the wrong place?

Note: I searched for comment flags, but only found questions about the 10k tools and the flags of others. This is about my own flags.

Edit: In fact I recently flagged a comment that I thought was pretty rude (along the lines of "moderators X and Y are morons"). It was in a question I was not involved in myself, so it's nothing personal. The flag was declined and I wanted to take another look at it, to see if I might have been wrong about the rudeness, and to better understand what is acceptable language in SO comments. But I couldn't remember where exactly I found that comment, and was kind of surprised that the flag-summary didn't help me out there either.

I recently flagged a comment but it is still waiting for review. I went to find it again in case the flag expires before it is reviewed but there is no way to do this in so far as I can see :( – Ren Nov 8 '12 at 11:49
This now happens as shown in More informative flagging history for comments. – tombull89 Jul 15 '13 at 10:25

You can't. Comments are ephemeral. Once they've been deleted, only moderators can view them, and not even simply at that.
