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

This question already has an answer here:

I happened upon this question, where the questioner commented on every answer with "I'd love an up vote!"

Is it correct to flag such clutter, perhaps as not constructive / off-topic, or is there a better way to correct users that beg for up votes (and similar behavior) via comments.

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.

That lady was doing it on all of her questions. Just burned about 25 comment flags from this lady begging for votes. – user133440 Feb 11 '13 at 20:32

That kind of comment is basically noise, so either "not constructive" or "too chatty" would work. A custom flag of "asking for upvotes" is fine too.

Thanks! And in the time it took for this answer to become eligible to be accepted, all of those comments were cleaned up. – Bort Feb 11 '13 at 18:52
