Actually, meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/17364/… covers the information better. It includes the effects that flagging has. –  Grace Note Jul 16 '10 at 12:02

Don't worry about it. The moderators evaluate each comment to determine whether or not it is actually spam before they delete it.

In addition, if enough people flag the comment, it is deleted automatically. See http://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/17364/how-does-comment-voting-and-flagging-work/17365#17365

Not true. If posts or comments collect enough flags, they are auto-deleted without any intervention. –  mmyers Jul 17 '10 at 4:10
