Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

ON http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4556145/setting-up-a-network-e-mail-server I saw a comment

Server setup -> not programming -> belongs on Serverfault.com – marc_s 27 secs ago

and tried to upvote the comment. I got the message

This comment is not eligible for voting or flagging.

What kind of comment is it?

As an aside: I don't like such "belongs on" comments, at all... But they cannot be flagged either. – Arjan Dec 29 '10 at 17:29

When a question is migrated, it is both closed and locked.

It is the latter state that restricts activity. See here for a description of what a locked post is, and what activities are allowed/disallowed on them.

For comparison, here is a closed question with comments, which can be voted on.
