Description

'Your email is <em>never</em> published nor shared.' should be removed from wp-includes/comment-template.php

ENV: WP Trunk r14092 ("3.0-beta1")

This type of (ethical) statement should be consciously made by the blog owner, and likely relates to their comment policy.
(Plugin material)

ADDITIONAL DETAILS

This is particularly problematic for multiple sites / blog networks like WordPress.com, where the trust is put in the service provider not the individual blogger.

Great points nacin! We should actually make it explicit. There are so many naive people out there, and so much poor language out there regarding contact forms being "email", so here is a patch with "email address" -- you knew this was the true path based on your commit msg of "regarding publication of email addresses" ;-)

I'd rather opt for "will not be published". People need to know that by submitting a comment, it will not show up with their comment.

Any theme that does that (such as a private site) should change the text. I agree the current text places a burden on the wrong people, but I think we should lighten its tone and promise instead of completely striking it.

So what to do? To change into "will not be published" or to move this in template files?

comment:4 @nacin5 years ago

My opinion is that I would like to see:

'comment_notes_before' => '<p class="comment-notes">' . __( 'Your email will not be published.' ) . ( $req ? __( ' Required fields are marked <span class="required">*</span>' ) : '' ) . '</p>',

This matches Kubrick, which was "(will not be published)" after the field label.

Now just 'Your email will not be published.'

(In [14132]) Switch to simpler language regarding publication of email addresses in comment_form() template. props bumbu, see #13026.

Didn't see your comment, as attachments don't trigger a notification. (I'll add that I like that it doesn't trigger a notification, but that's another story.)
