Assuming you are selecting lines and then using Cmd-{ (Shift-Cmd-[)  
to comment out the lines I seem to get the same behavior no matter  
how many lines I choose. A single line, multiple lines by dragging  
(remember that paragraphs are soft wrapped so they act like a single  
line), multiple lines by Shift and Up/Down Arrow, All by Cmd-A, give  
the same result: the comments marks are placed at the beginning of  
the line and everything that is a comment turns red. I assume that if  
the selection is truely huge it will take some time to propagate  
through the selection.

By the way, which version of OS X and which version of TeXShop are  
you using?

Finally, I don't mean to be (too) pushy but I'm curious; are you the  
George Gratzer who wrote the `Math Into LaTeX' book?

Good Luck,
