People tend to make comments in code (and other areas) where they don't think anyone will ever see them. That is not always the case. At one of my previous jobs we flew to Chicago to look at a system to do monitoring for us. While we were there and taking the 'Grand tour' we noticed one of the techs had a screen up and had put some 'inappropriate' comments about one of their customers. As it turned out that customer had a close working partnership with my company. The end result was they lost both our business and that of our partner. At the time it was several million $ per year. IMHO - don't put anything in comments you would not say out loud to a group of people.
