Because removing commented lines lets you get a quick view only of active lines - in a file that might have only a few active lines among several screens of commented lines, e.g. a stock squid.conf file..
Well, a simple grep -v ^\# will do that. If an "active" line has a trailing comment, it doesn't matter. It also doesn't explain why you want to remove comments from a shell script.
