Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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
@tombull89: Thanks for letting me know! :) – Junuxx Jul 15 '13 at 16:19

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