    Over on Retrocomputing.SE, another young beta site, we tend to leave these comments up a week or so, then delete as obsolete rather than too chatty.

  • @Chenmunka Good idea and that makes sense. Whoever is doing the flagging, using obsolete flag could be better. I think this suggestion is good and some of these comments can be cleaned up / deleted.

I personally always dismiss these type of flags. And probably I'm not following the Stack Exchange guidelines too closely by doing this.

Comments, in general are discouraged across the Stack Exchange network. However, I personally feel the need to build up a community and not a group of unrelated Q&A-posters.

Saying Thank you! is a nice gesture, and I appreciate that as long as people also vote up and accept helpful answers.
