Remove WEBSITE field from comments

Description

I think that it's time to remove the "WEBSITE" field from comments at all (or at least, make it optional, with the default state disabled), because nowadays, that field is JUST AN ATTRACTION to spam, and nothing actually usable (I am not sure it has ever been usable more than the downside of spamming targets).

Also, my suggestion also, to just loose any attraction for spamming, is to convert all links in comments to javascript clickable elements (like this example ), so all spammers would know there is not reason for spamming because they wouldnt have any "backlink" actually.
