The only comments I ever find useful are the "unprofessional" ones - things like "WTF, FooCorp are complete dicks and didn't implement the Blah spec properly, so now we have to work around their shit here". Without those kinds of comments it can be hard to understand the motivation behind broken-looking code that is actually broken by necessity.

Just aslong as they say how they have to work around the FooCorp fuck up rather than saying something like "Dunno how we did it, it just works".
