I've found a better way to pitch "remove comments": When you see a one-liner comment, there are two opportunities for its removal:
In this way our comments become reflected in the code itself, making the code more readable/understandable, more resistant to comment rot, and more meaningful to tools like IDEs.
One more statement: Not every comment can/should be removed, this is not absolutist advice.
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.
