Great tips! While I still advocate intent-commenting (won't go into that yet again here), I think these principles are superb! (+10 to style guides.)
Nice rule of thumb to go along with this: the "what" of your code should always be clear without comments.
I agree that comments are necessary, depending on the circumstance. Overall though, for standard CRUD operations, they can be unhelpful.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
