I've seen a number of questions where there are a few useful clarifying questions in the comments, and then a funny comment, and the funny comment has several upvotes. once the comments fold, this is going to bump a useful comment away. Is there anything sensible to do about this?

We clean up comments that have outlived their use, and joke comments outlive their use as soon as they're posted.

Flag them as chatty or not constructive and they'll be deleted.

    Funny comments shouldn't be deleted until they haver several upvotes. They are not outlived if not many people have laughed after reading them. – Marcelo Aug 31 '11 at 22:19
