In what version are we going to address the single most confusing aspect of WordPress - How to turn off comments for posts and pages?
Unless you are a expert, this problem comes up every time a neophyte sets up a website using WordPress. It is very confusing. I'm guessing that the majority of new WordPress sites are NOT blogs. Yet this is not the default.
I've seen this question raised so many times it defies the laws of logic that it hasn't been addressed by now.
