What are our standards for flagging comments here? I've noted that most mods here have different standards for comment flags than are found on other sites. Because of such, nearly half of my comment flags have been declined, mostly obsolete and chatty flags. I've mostly given up flagging comments here except for blatantly rude comments.
For example, I've flagged comments suggesting the author change something in the post after the author has made the said changes as obsolete. However, they have been repeatedly declined. As I understand it, comments are of ephemeral importance. Once they've fulfilled their purpose (in this case notifying the author of needed changes), they are obsolete. They are just noise. On other sites, I generally flag these as obsolete, but I've given up doing that here.
Other examples of comments that I see as too chatty or obsolete are "+1 nice answer", "@user I've made the changes" (after the user has been given a chance too read it of course), or "happy new year". I've flagged comments like these and all have been declined.
Could we have some official consensus on comment flags (especially pertaining to obsolete and too chatty flags)?
