    I flag comments all the time. Especially those obnoxious ones where people complain that the user doesn't meet their arbitrary accept rate threshold, and therefore they're not going to try to answer their question. May 6, 2011 at 11:20
  • If they don't hard delete comments from db, this should be possible.

  • Comments are soft-deleted, but I believe are only visible to developers.

    Moderators can see deleted comments for any post on a special page.

This now happens as shown in More informative flagging history for comments.

Previously, it seemed that comments were deleted but there was some work done recently on how flags are stored. This can now be found in your flagging history.
