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

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.
