In our case, we develop an in-house application that we sell to financial institutions, so there's no code delivery to clients, though I 110% agree with you that any delivered code should be devoid of inappropriate comments.

I'm definitely in the camp to not include comments unless they are necessary, particularly to explain complex logic or to explain some weird workaround that had to be implemented. Both of these cases are ripe for hacks and kludges, IMO. So, yes, admitting the problem is the first step, so to speak, but I also think it's good to have a bit of sense of humor about it.
