I kind of like flagging comments (as several mods will attest), and I have a few systems in place to aid me in flagging those comments (queues, etc.)
Now, it's recently come about that one of my more complicated attempts to dredge up obsolete comments on SO requires a copy of the entire comments table - like the one exposed on SEDE.
I tried abusing SEDE to get the comments, but it's smart enough not to fetch twenty-four million and let me download them as a .csv.
So how do I go about getting this data? (Ideally in a way that is as painless as possible for both SE and I)
I'm fine with just about any standard format, .csv or .sql being preferred. In the end, I want them in a MySQL DB.
