in thread On comments

I recently wrote a few modules for our company where the ratio of comments vs code was about 5:1. And the code wasn't complicated. Mostly finding some maximums and value switches in sequences, followed by changing some numbers.

Still, I consider the comments to be very important. Sure, it's easy to see from the code that some numbers at the end of the sequence are changed - but without the comments, you will have no idea why it happens.
