I happened upon this question, where the questioner commented on every answer with "I'd love an up vote!"

Is it correct to flag such clutter, perhaps as not constructive / off-topic, or is there a better way to correct users that beg for up votes (and similar behavior) via comments.

    That lady was doing it on all of her questions. Just burned about 25 comment flags from this lady begging for votes.

That kind of comment is basically noise, so either "not constructive" or "too chatty" would work. A custom flag of "asking for upvotes" is fine too.

    Thanks! And in the time it took for this answer to become eligible to be accepted, all of those comments were cleaned up.
