I'm not really a regular on this part of Stack Exchange, but I assume comments are treated roughly the same on all Stack Exchange sites.
Recently I saw a comment on a question which didn't seem to be asking for clarification at all, just making tangential commentary. As always (well, when I think of it), I flag such comments as "not constructive".
However this particular flag was declined, which surprised me as I had previously flagged a likewise non-constructive comment on the same question which was removed.
Was I mistaken? Did I use the wrong flag? Did I flag the previous comment correctly?
