Probably laziness.  Many programmers are so keen to make progress they 
'forget' to comment thier code.  i think this is a mistake in any code and 
especially open source code where the idea is others can look at the code to 
undestand how it works and either improve it or derive other code from it.

Arguments like 'the code is self documenting' just do not wash.
