TDV flagged down to $0.67, but a comment at $26.93? How can it payout? LOL

As stated... how can a comment payout when the post doesn't? Or is that why it's "potential payout"? :D

Oh, i just traced that post and saw what you are saying. YES, it is possible. i dont know too much but i think originally the post may have had higher earning but because it was flagged and perhaps by people who may have like high steem power too, the earning got reduced. so you can find your earning big but if gets flagged before payout time, it can reduce drastically and your eventual payout will reduce. so yes, that is why it is potential payout. is thispost a screen shot? i was trying to click on the links but it wasnt clicking. it so looks like written post.

as for the comment with high pay, perhaps people who voted it have high steem power too or influence on steemit, so to speak!
