Do you get points/reputation for upvoted comments?

I know this is a question I should be able to find easily, but I can't seem to find it by searching here or skimming the faq. Thanks

No:

No reputation of any kind is earned or lost from comment votes.

There is, however, a badge.

    Don't forget about me Shog9. I don't mind having the pundit badge. :)

4 easy steps to become a pundit:

  1. Camp out on “fun” questions (but only comment on them).
  2. Be mildly amusing.
  3. ???
  4. Pundit!

Uh, wait. A pundit is someone who makes bad puns, right?

    Wikied because a) it doesn't answer the question, b) I already posted it as a comment to the blog, and c) it was so bad then that I had to slap myself after I posted it.

    This is a fine meta-answer-comment-combo by mmyers: Stating a hypothesis in the answer and proving it right with the comment ;)

The answer is no, your reputation will not be changed because of comment votes. But you must earn enough reputation to be able to comment.
