Do not show custom comment types in admin backend

Description

Further to #13812, attached is a patch to avoid showing custom comment types in the admin backend (both in the "Recent Comments" dashboard widgets and comment admin/moderation page).

In the future, there should probably be some form of built-in interface for custom comment types (as with taxonomies and posts), but for now it's very helpful to avoid showing them at all, limiting the admin backend to proper comments only.

It took about 30 seconds for nacin to reject this shitty patch on grounds both general [1] and specific [2]. :-)

Ultimately this is a duplicate of #12668.

[1] without really good custom comment type support, doing nasty things like this just papers over problems, providing a false sense of security
[2] unintended consequences, particularly at RC3 point. former release manager commits epic release management faux pas.
