Make WordPress Core

Comments: The year is 2003. Permalinks are a new thing and everyone's using Blogger. It's a time when opening a modal window in JavaScript to view a section of a website is not a completely weird thing, although many users get annoyed by it. b2 has recently become WordPress, and with it comes a bunch of functionality that will become stale over the next decade, remnants of simpler times.

Twelve years later, after no fewer than three themes have intentionally implemented popup comments in their functionality, before being abandoned for at least the last six years, we've reached a time where we can put this era behind us. A time when we can remove comment popup functionality from WordPress.

If this breaks the internet, I'll eat my hat.

Fixes #28617
