A few weeks ago, I asked:
> Many programming languages have syntax that means "everything from this token until the end of the line is a comment" (e.g., // in C-family, ; in Lisp family, # in shell family)

@JordiGH I give a talk two or three times a year on ethics and values in open source, and one of the points I try to emphasize is that you really, really need to understand what your own values and principles are, because these questions will never land in your lap with a hazmat label on them saying "ethical quandary here". They'll just be listed as issue number 4 of this quarter's deliverables.
