In "Agreed" or "agreed to" there is a comment that has been re-written as answer.

Is flagging the comment as obsolete correct, in this case?
In which other cases should a comment be marked as obsolete?
Does that have a meaning, or do moderators see it just as background noise?

Is flagging the comment as obsolete correct, in this case?

Yes.

In which other cases should a comment be marked as obsolete?

When the comment is no longer valuable, such as when a comment suggests a rephrasing of the question that is subsequently edited into the question.

Does that have a meaning, or do moderators see it just as background noise?

We delete obsolete comments, if that's what you're asking.

  • With the last question I simply mean to ask if flagging such comments is something that moderators don't like because there are too many comments that are flagged without a reason, or because it's preferable to focus on something else. I didn't doubt obsolete comments are deleted; I just thought that it could be considered secondary, if there are already too comments that are wrongly flagged. – kiamlaluno Aug 28 '11 at 19:31
  • @kiam Always feel free to flag; truth be told, we don't actually get a lot of flagged comments, so it's perfectly fine. – waiwai933 Aug 28 '11 at 19:31
