Now that we've go that out of the way. I also agree with one aspect of the argument not to comment. And that is that sometimes comments get in the way of reading code and figuring out what it does. But does that mean we should stop commenting our code? I say no. Instead, if I feel that comments are in the way, I turn them off.
Now, there is not a button to turn off comments in Eclipse (at least I don't think there is) but there is a relatively simple way to make them virtually invisible.

And if you do want to read the comment, you can expand and highlight:
