I have autocomplete activated with "auto_complete_selector": "source", however when I'm writing long-form comment blocks the autocomplete suggestions are distracting (i.e. typing current attempts to autocomplete to current).

Can autocomplete be configured to only activate outside of a comment scope?

Just set the following in your preferences:

"auto_complete_selector": "source -comment"

and you should be all set.
