There is nothing wrong in keeping them.. but it could be very useful if you learn what that lines do and why are there..
and it makes your code look awful, if someone has to pick it up and change, and you have that lines that do nothing.. also keeping code that is dead makes software prone to be buggy

I will not defend Doug (he can do that by himself) but did you realize that your problem is how to concatenate a string, one of the first thing you try to learn when you pick up a new language??
