can I do a "comment out" in a JQL statement

Can you make a comment out situation in a JQL string?   Like you can in html  <!-- text --> 

thanks

Curious. What's the need for the comment out? I don't remember JQL having that feature.

I don't think it has a comment ability either, you're right. Sometimes it'd be nice to leave comments in a query though, just to be nice to others if a query is complex.
