Is there a way to retract a comment flag ?

Just did one thinking it was disguised advertising before realizing my mistake.

No. We can't even retract normal flags. – animuson Oct 28 '12 at 2:00
Ok. Just want to avoid adding unnecessary tasks on the moderation side. – James Poulson Oct 28 '12 at 2:01

There isn't a way to retract a flag.

Don't worry about the specific flag you're referring to, I dismissed it. A comment pointing to a commercial product that's relevant(ish) to the question isn't really a bad thing, we point to commercial products all the time (I have several comments out there pointing to stuff like PHPStorm or JIRA, for example).
