Why must they be ignored?

Do you relay think single line comments must be formatted as the rest of code? And why can't I comment whole line from the first symbol?

It doesn't matter what I think. By default, PHPCS implements the PEAR standard. If you don't like the PEAR standard, there are several others that developers have written for use with PHPCS, or you can write your own custom ruleset.xml file or PHP sniffs. All standards included with PHPCS require comments to be indented to the same line as normal code, so I'm closing this report as PHPCS is working as intended. If you think that PHPCS is incorrectly implementing part of a documented standard, please re-open this report and I will look into it.
