This question already has an answer here:

I recently asked a question. While scrolling , I accidentally clicked on the upvote button on the comment. The comment is against my question[First comment on question my given link]. How to remove that? I have found following from one of the answer on Meta.

  1. You can un-upvote a comment within the first 60 seconds, provided you did not navigate away.
  2. Once you un-upvote a comment you can not upvote it again.

But, when I will have upvoted a comment and I want it to be flagged, how should I do that?

    It tells you that you can't flag a comment that you have upvoted, and there is a feature request already asking for the ability to do so. – Andrew Barber Feb 16 '13 at 7:17

    It does answer it. The answer is "you can't". And it's a [feature-request] just like this one, asking for the same thing (yours doesn't explicitly ask for it) – Manishearth Feb 16 '13 at 7:18

No, upvoted comment cannot be flagged:

Be careful while using touchscreen devices to browse Stack overflow for it sucks upvoting a comment against your own question or comment.

  • @Downvoter: Please explain? Is it not allowed to answer my own question here? – Bhushan Firake Feb 16 '13 at 7:23

    There is no point to answering this question, since it does not bring any new information to light. See the linked duplicate for existing discussion on this topic. Also, this is a feature request, so just saying "No, this can't be done" is no answer. – Asad Saeeduddin Feb 16 '13 at 7:25
  • @Asions So why people are saying that my question is answered at that duplicate link?If that is not the real answer...?? – Bhushan Firake Feb 16 '13 at 7:26

    Because your question is answered at the duplicate link. I'm not sure what you mean by it not being the "real answer". – Asad Saeeduddin Feb 16 '13 at 7:27
  • @Asad The answer is no you can't ..right? So posting the answer here is not allowed? – Bhushan Firake Feb 16 '13 at 7:28
  • Bhushan, the purpose of answering your own question is to share knowledge. This doesn't bring anything new to the table. We all know that an upvoted comment cannot be flagged; in fact, there is an existing feature request pertaining to this. Have a look at the link to see what I mean. – Asad Saeeduddin Feb 16 '13 at 7:29
