The guidelines say:
Comments: Everybody can add their own comments at the end of each
article. Comments are subject to the guidelines for hiding. They can be
* State an opinion about any given posting.
* Add information.
* Correct inaccurate or malicious information.
* Rectify misinformation
Which implies that comments which do none of the above can be hidden. I
personally think that the idea that comments should be related to the
post they're comments on is implicit in the whole concept (that's why
they're 'comments'). If it needs to be made explicit then fine, I guess
- but ekes's hides seem entirely appropriate.
