Misleading e-mail options

Description

In the Admin if you goto Settings->Discussion you have a section called 'E-mail me whenever' that has two checkboxes:

  • Anyone posts a comment
  • A comment is held for moderation

It is misleading because the 1st option doesn't e-mail 'me' it e-mails the post author and the 2nd option e-mails the WP Admin e-mail. There is no way to tell this without digging into the core code. The wording should be changed to be more clear.
