[webkit-dev] About removing comments

Please don't start a comment removing crusade!

I've just noticed a patch that got landed a few hours ago, which removed a comment I found quite useful when fixing a bug in related code, <https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=53549>. This was essentially a FIXME, and it also explained the end result of a very convoluted code path.

That code definitely needs refactoring, but how does removing a comment without actual refactoring help?
