In my opinion, it would be useful for general users to know how moderators feel about comment-flags. I am specifically interested in moderator's view of what constitutes helpful versus counter-productive flagging. I don't need any guidance about blatantly evil comment, or about comments where a user expresses a viewpoint that I disagree with.
I think guidance is necessary given that SE has kind of gone off the deep end with its new CoC. I noticed that one can flag a comment for being unfriendly, unkind, rude, condescending (I was kind of surprised at that, maybe it just hasn't been on my radar). A substantial number of comments here do, in my opinion, count as not being kind or friendly, but I suspect that this is because of the subject matter (law being a cold, hard objective subject matter). Actually rude comments are rare, but I also know that people vary substantially in terms of what counts as "rude" for them.
I do not know what burden it imposes on moderators to flag comments, and therefore (consistent with my goal of improving LSE) whether it is counterproductive to flag comments that are not egregious. So I'm asking for some feedback on the value of users flagging comments, and information on where the line ought to be drawn.
