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

I understand that, since questions with close votes show up to many people, voting is disabled. Otherwise, would get way too much (negative) rep that they only get because of the close vote.

However, how does this reason for locking votes apply on flagging comments? The faster offensive comments get removed, the better, not?

Can someone explain this to me? Or, if not, could this be changed?

Related to this but different (not?) as this is about flagging and not about voting. – Camil Staps May 28 '13 at 17:48
