On Stack Overflow I see many comments like "+1", "great answer", and "yeah man!". What is the best way to flag them?

  • They really aren't constructive responses, almost verging on spam, couldn't they just be flagged as that if you get a lot of comments like it. (And it's taking all of my restraint not to sarcastically post +1)

    @CBredlow: Don't flag them as spam, spam comments are handled differently and might throw of future hueristics to auto-detect spam. Aug 24 '12 at 16:41

These are best flagged as chatty.

    I'd expect that "Not Constructive" would be good, too, because they're...not constructive.

  • @Valet Tree: That too, but I guess "chatty" gets the point across; "not constructive" on the other hand sounds rather abstract to me. Either one works, though. Aug 24 '12 at 16:43

  • So when would you use "Not constructive" and when "Too Chatty"? Aug 24 '12 at 17:17
  • @MrLister: Why do you need to know that? <-- Not constructive.
