Today I wanted to flag a comment as offensive, but accidentally upvoted it instead. And as if that wasn't bad enough, now I can't flag it anymore.

I suppose the logic makes sense.

"Why would someone want to flag a comment they liked?"

Well, "because they clicked upvote by mistake because flag & upvote are too damn close, that's why!"


I still can't understand why upvoting a comment shouldn't be reversible for a few seconds…

This is now fixed, you can "unupvote" your comment and then flag it.

I'd recommend reading waffle's other answer to a similar question which states how the new feature works. – Ambo100 Apr 26 '12 at 10:26
