Not within Smalltalk code; you'd effectively be uncommenting stuff you wanted commented out.

"this is my comment about commenting using "double quotes" for comments"

The double quotes is now active code. Imagine the fun possibilities that provides. Of course, the Shout highlighter will show it as not-comment, but that can be very difficult to spot in certain theme/screen/colour-blindness mixes. I've been adding 
		set: #comment for: #SHTextStylerST80 to: {Color cyan muchDarker. TextEmphasis italic};
in SqueakTheme class>>#addSyntaxHighlighting: to help with that.
