Yes, IMO Emacs/ESS isn't going to compete with Rstudio on
out-of-the-box convenience. But we can compete on features! Put this
in your config file
;; don't indent comments
(setq ess-indent-with-fancy-comments nil)
;; turn on outline mode
(setq-local outline-regexp "[# ]+")
and not only will single # comments not be aligned at comment-column,
but code folder will work too!
