For the record I agree that those comments were not helpful and would
have strongly preferred if they had been left out.

That said, I do agree with Maciej that the current set of warnings
seem very arbitrary and would like to see some sort hard and fast
rule. For example I think it would be better to mark up things that
have turned into perma-threads, rather than attempting to mark up ones
that might turn into perma-threads.
