I'm seeing

"// TODO sg: TMP solution until we are confident in our current implementation of async imports // once we are, we can move the if into the js entry file and dynamically load the mark obsolete module"

at the bottom of each page (directly above the footer) on all question pages, I have tried multiple browsers.

Seems to be in this snippet:

<script>StackExchange.ready(function(){$.get('/posts/375317/ivc/cf81');});</script>
<noscript><div><img src="/posts/375317/ivc/cf81" class="dno" alt="" width="0" height="0"></div></noscript><div style="display:none" id="js-codeblock-lang"></div></div>

                        
// TODO sg: TMP solution until we are confident in our current implementation of async imports
// once we are, we can move the if into the js entry file and dynamically load the mark obsolete module

        </div>
    </div>

            <footer id="footer" class="site-footer js-footer" role="contentinfo">

Just load any question and scroll down to replicate the issue.

    Don't worry they kept TODO in the code so they won't forget to change it later.

    Reproduced, although it only appears on questions where I already have an answer.

    Also reported on MSO: Is this "TODO" supposed to be at the bottom of the page?. Commented Jan 19, 2022 at 16:31

    I love this TODO. Please don't remove it. FYI: Hofstadter's law: "It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law."

    Should replace it with "//todo: remove todo"
