How about a module or command called, say, "skipThis" that's defined in 
the opening cells of a notebook, such that if you put


as the first line in any subsequent Input cell in the notebook, the 
remainder of that Input cell will be skipped, i.e. not executed -- 
without your having to wrap the remainder of the cell in an explicit 
If[ ] statement or similar coding.

Or, an inputOff statement such that


as the first line of any Input cell will turn off execution of any 
subsequent Input cells (and perhaps the remainder of the cell containing 
the statement), until an Input cell beginning with


is encountered.

[I trust the utility of these will be reasonably obvious . . . ]
