Is it possible to mark comments as spam, aggressive or offensive; in the same way that posts can be?

There's one I've just noticed that is a good candidate simply by the use of language ie words generally understood to be offensive.

    If you place your cursor on the left side of the comment, an arrow (for an up vote) and a flag appear. Press the flag, and a series of options appear. You can then flag the comment as rude, not constructive, etc. This feature is on all SE sites, including Philosophy SE – Cicero Sep 28 '15 at 1:14
  • @cicero: Ok, thks; I just tried it: I'm using a smartphone and all I see on the left of the comment is a small triangle to vote up - no flag. I guess it's only supported on proper computers, or the like. – Mozibur Ullah Sep 28 '15 at 2:00

Desktop version

If you hover the comment, you see on the left a triangle for upvoting and a flag for flagging.

Mobile version

This is not possible. In most mobile browsers you can however tick a checkbox 'request desktop version', and then you can do like in the desktop version.

Android app

First tap the comment. Then, in the top menu there is an option 'flag'.

iOS app (thanks Cicero)

If you press the comment you get a series of options bellow. On the left is the upvote button, but in the middle there is a flag option. Press this flag, and the options for flagging come.
