At least it’s better than the flip side. I recall at work coming across something like this

[bad code
more bad code
spaghetti code]

At this point I’m thinking, who wrote this?! So I scroll up and find something like this

/* Comment – I know this is poorly done, but I need to get this out for blah blah release blah blah lame excuse etc etc …. – SS */

At which point, one has two options: fix the code, or modify the file to attribute the comment to someone else =P
