To exclude line from plotted data add '#' at the beginnig of line.
gnuplot will treat it as a comment.
Another way is to rewrite ascii file with data so it will be "loadable"
file for gnuplot.
Something like this will work:
set title 'wharewer it is'
0.2 2 (your data)
load this file in gnuplot with command load 'filename.gpl'
