Default comment template should not promise email addresses will not be published

Description

The comment template by default says that commenters' email addresses will not be published. Since the email address is available to the blog owner, we can't reliably promise this a priori.

A message that informs the user about who will have access to their email address would be more accurate in a default setting.
