Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

Not a big deal, but I just flagged two comments on the same thread, but I only got the "Really flag?" question on the first flag; the second one went right through.

If that's of importance: I was a little too quick, so the first time I tried to flag the second comment, I got the red 5-second box.

@Jarrod, @balpha: [status-completed]? – Jon Seigel Aug 23 '10 at 2:39
@Jon yes, I can't repo - must have been fixed a long time ago :) – Jarrod Dixon Aug 27 '10 at 14:45

I can't speak for the devs (re the motivation), but I'm not sure I'd consider that a bug... the chances are that if you've read (and acknowledged) the message once on that page, then you probably know what you're doing - perhaps flagging a comment war (although a moderator flag would be useful too if it is out of hand).

True, might even be by design. Just felt odd. – balpha Aug 21 '09 at 10:57

Although I agree with Marc that it is possible that it only shows up once since it will assume you know what you are doing the second time around, that doesn't really take into account situations where you may misclick. There have been several times that I attempted to upvote, but I just flat out missed and accidentally flagged (and as a mod once accidentally deleted the comment).

That's the problem with hooves! – Ladybug Killer Aug 21 '09 at 11:13
I know. It's all so frustrating! – TheTXI Aug 21 '09 at 11:28
