It does the same thing to me. It can get really annoying. All I think that you can do is view it, then sign out and back in again. I also viewed the comment a few times and I think after the third time, it goes away.

I think it has to do with their software...Ask.com is trying really something innovative here, because it is an information site that is also highly interactive.
There is also the issue that when you click on the blinking New Comment there is often no new comment there; but if you wait fifteen minutes and then come back, by then the comment will register.
They also work really hard to keep hurtful answers off the site, but in the process some very fine ones get zapped also...I am guessing Ask is working constantly on their software and usually I do not even bother to bring up software kinds of issues to them, but be sure you do know about the gray FEEDBACK bar just to the right here where you can Share Your Ideas or Report A Problem.
