I've just had one recent comment flag declined on a noisy comment.

This comment was a reply to a deleted '+1' comment, and said, simply:

@FrankL Thanks!

When you go to post a comment, you see this:

see blockquote below

Use comments to ask for more information or suggest improvements. Avoid comments like "+1" or "thanks". (emphasis mine)

And Jeff Atwood said to flag these.

So I flagged the +1 comment, which was automatically deemed helpful. I then flagged the remaining thanks to that comment as 'no longer needed'. So... why was it declined?


That action didn't appear in the moderator activity history, so I'm not exactly sure how it was handled. Regardless, I agree and have deleted the comment.
