#22961 new defect (bug)

"Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks.)" description is misleading

The description for enabling pingbacks and trackback is "Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks.)". Which is not correct a more appropriate description should be "By default new posts can recieve notification (pingbacks and trackbacks) from other blogs".

The current description is broken in particular when the option is not set which leads to the assumption that the pingbacks and trackbacks are block while they are not as they are still enabled for posts which were create before the option was disabled.

Ok, maybe it was just me focusing on the right hand side and ignoring the "Default article settings" on the left:( but I still think it is confusing. The style in the line below it - "Allow people to post comments on new articles" is better IMO.
