OK, I'm aware that triple-quotes strings can serve as multiline comments. For example,

"""Hello, I am a multiline comment"""


'''Hello, I am a multiline comment'''

But technically speaking these are strings, correct?

I've googled and read the Python style guide, but I was unable to find a technical answer to why there is no formal implementation of multiline, /* */ type of comments. I have no problem using triple quotes, but I am a little curious as to what led to this design decision.

You can use multi-line strings as multi-line comments. Unless used as docstrings, they generate no code.
