#4768: Make comment moderation buttons more intuitive

 The comment moderation buttons (Yes/No) that you get after clicking on
 link in a "Please moderate: [comment name]" email are needlessly

 If you click on the Delete It, Spam It, or Approve It links, you get a
 prompt followed by Yes/No. This requires the user to pause and figure out
 what Yes corresponds do: keep it? Spam it? Delete it? Save it? Show it?

 Two suggested workarounds:
 1. (Preferred) Show one dialog for each comment, and provide three
 buttons: Approve, Delete, and Spam.
 1. If you must maintain the "Approve it/Delete it/Spam it" links in the
 email, at least use something intuitive in the button names. E.g., instead
 of "Caution: You are about to mark the following comment as spam: Are you
 sure you want to do that? Yes/No", replace the question with "Please
 confirm your choice:", and the buttons could be something like "Mark as
 Spam" and "Do nothing". The same would need to happen to the views you get
 after clicking on the "Delete it" or "Approve it" links.
