Ideom, (unlike some other programming languages) has decorator lines (single line ascii art) which are not comments, but are ignored nevertheless.
For example, C has /********/, whereas Ideom has **********.

Bah, and indeed, Humbug.

That's a very good idea and somewhat justifies putting decorator lines in comments. Ideom is a verbose language and as such an Ideom comment is a very rare thing indeed. The Ideom can't justify putting non information in a comment (which is designed to impart some such information - apart from the code) which is the reason why decorator lines are permitted. For example an idiomatic comment is the copyright notice which in The Ideom looks like this:

******************************************
[ The Ideom - Copyright 2019, Mike Gonta ]
******************************************

The lines of '*' are not comments - they're decorator lines, while the notice is an actual comment.
