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

If you try and flag two comments in a row, you run into the vote rate-limiter:

You may only submit a comment vote every 5 seconds.

However, after 5 seconds the flag button no longer works; instead you get:

Please specify why you are flagging this comment

and another 5 second countdown. You need to refresh the page before you can get the flag dialog to come up for that comment

+1. It'd be super nice if the comment vote interval was per-user based on flag weight: when I take the time to read a pile of comments and decide which ones are over-the-line, I'd love to turn that into a decision in five seconds total, not a minute or two while I wait for a five-second timer to expire over and over again. (And I'm not even getting good at judging five seconds: most of the time it takes me about three clicks before I reach the five seconds.) – sarnold Jun 10 '11 at 20:30

Thanks for reporting this - a fix will be pushed tonight.
