Comments: Further improve text of initial comment.

In [37888], the comment text was initially updated, however an opportunity to make the text less trivializing of actions that users will take was missed. To quote Helen Hou-Sandi: "It's important not to trivialize actions that are perfectly reasonable for a user to find tricky (where to go to log in is not exactly intuitive, even with the rewrites we have now)."

The text of the comment now reads:

Hi, this is a comment.
To get started with moderating, editing, and deleting comments, please visit the Comments screen in the dashboard.
Commenter avatars come from <a href="https://gravatar.com">Gravatar</a>.

Some interesting reading on the topic of "Simple" and "Easy" and how they relate to software development can be found at http://andrewspittle.com/2012/01/31/avoiding-easy/ and written by andrewspittle.

Props helen.
Fixes #36702.
