I found Jeff's answer here quite interesting. He's basically saying that some of the badges are a surprise. I can accept this, and it is a surprise when I earn said badges. But...

Now that I've earned the pundit badge, my curiosity is piqued and I want to know which comments helped me earn it.

I suppose I don't mind being kept in the dark until I got it, but now I need to know.

Is there a way to find this out? If there isn't, I think it would be a beneficial feature. Similar to the badge, badge, etc.

    Your curiosity is piqued. – CanSpice Mar 22 '11 at 16:43

The Stack Exchange Data Explorer should be able to find this information for you.

This query lists your top-ranked comments. It won't be exact due to the out-of-date information, but you should be able to use the top items in that list to infer not only which comments probably are at enough score now, but also to navigate to those comments just to double-check.

    That's great.. must say that data.stackexchange is a real gold mine! – Shadow9 Mar 22 '11 at 15:57
  • wow is that data ever out of date. For me earning the Pundit badge, only one of those results has 10 upvotes, and that one... I can't even find my comment. Hmmm.... – Chase Florell Mar 22 '11 at 17:50
  • I've upvoted you based on the fact that data.stackexchange is awesome, however it doesn't seem to show the real data. – Chase Florell Mar 22 '11 at 17:51
  • @rockinthesixstring: it's real data, but it's updated only once per two months (next: 1st of April). That's why it's kind of outdated most of the time. – Olli Mar 22 '11 at 18:48

    @rockin It's not real data, but it still gives a better picture than the alternatives (of which the best is the comments filter on the activity tab in your profile page). It provides links so that you can clarify whether or not the comment qualified. Also, remember that Pundit changed to 5 upvotes, not 10. – Grace Note Mar 22 '11 at 19:47
  • Why only every second month? :/ – lpapp Jan 1 '14 at 1:56
