We had a guy who'd found an even more clever way. He did comment the 
code, but his comments reported what the code didn't do, instead of what 
the code was doing. Sort of an embedded and disguised TODO list, which 
could easily lead to believe that a feature was implemented, when 
actually it wasn't!
