You haven't heard the "code should be self documenting" crap? I had a manager who wanted comments stripped out precisely because of this.

I will sometimes leave code that has been commented out in just to remind future me, "Oh yeah, we tried that before and it didn't work."
I’ve given up trying to be calm. However, I am open to feeling slightly less agitated.
