squid.conf is a CONFIGURATION FILE that happens to have a lot of instructions
for use embedded in it.  Everything that starts with a # sign is a "remark" and
is ignored by the program.  That way, you can have the instructions for use
right beside and along with the actual configuration directions that the
program reads and follows.

Close, but not quite.  Notice that the instructions tell you that the tag is
visible_hostname. You have to tell squid what Hbsk2.localdomain means using the
specified tag.

visible_hostname Hbsk2.localdomain

Like that.
