you shouldn't delete the text of the comments but rather the whole text-object.

good: select the "comment" so it turns blue but without getting a cursor to 
edit the text. delete the whole thing at once, either with Ctrl-X or backspace.

bad: click on the "comment" until you get a cursor so you could edit the text 
and delete it

btw. this is a feature (just to get it right)
