Can we stop doing this? It doesn't add anything other than clutter.

I suppose if you really hate them that much you could always just flag them as noise... –  James McNellis May 5 '10 at 1:50

I've occasionally wondered if I'm the only one who ever flags comments as noise. I've never seen a comment be deleted from such a flag. –  Ether May 5 '10 at 2:24

@Ether isn't that self-fulfilling? You'd never see a deleted comment, therefore.... –  Tom Ritter May 5 '10 at 3:19

I was going to ask this question...but... –  IAbstract May 5 '10 at 3:41
    
@Tom: I was thinking that I would see the comment disappear if I was the final flagger. Perhaps not. –  Ether May 5 '10 at 4:02
    
@Ether: I have seen comments disappear after I flag them, but only a handful of times over the past 6 months or so. –  Gnome May 5 '10 at 5:59
    
I don't care since it's out of a mood and "n new answers have been posted" –  stacker May 18 '10 at 15:22

I wanted to add a clever comment, but Bill beat me to it! –  Kobi May 5 '10 at 9:34

Flag it as noise, if you feel strongly enough about it.

If enough people feel the same way, they'll get deleted.

@Chacha102: How do you do that? –  SLaks May 5 '10 at 1:37

... and pretty much everything else (ps, I had to upvote all 3 comments @cha) –  jmfsg May 5 '10 at 1:38
    
@George: In posts, &nbsp;, or <!-- Hi there!-->. –  SLaks May 5 '10 at 1:38
    
Like ​​​​​​​​this. –  Super Long Names are Hilarious May 5 '10 at 1:39
    
In regular posts I go for the <!-- HTML COMMENT --> technique. Comments is simply a backtick, a space, another backtick, and repeat. –  Tyler Carter May 5 '10 at 1:39
    
@Chacha - No, for comments you should go to a terminal to get some U200B characters (I use a Perl one-liner: perl -e 'binmode(STDOUT, "utf-8"); print chr(hex "200B") x 80') and then copy-paste a few into the middle of a comment block. –  Super Long Names are Hilarious May 5 '10 at 1:44
