#3819: New Comment Moderation: better buttons

 Severity:  normal          |    Keywords:  approve delete spam moderate comment
 When you go to approve, delete or spam a comment, the page that asks you
 to confirm says something like "You are about to approve the following
 comment: ... Are you sure you want to do that?" and then shows a pair of
 "[Yes]" "[No]" buttons.

 Even better would be something like:

 You are about to approve the following comment: ...

 [Approve this comment] [Don't approve now]

 The problem with the Yes & No buttons is that the user has to notice or
 remember what the question is.  If the user clicks on delete but thinks
 that they clicked on approve, they will pick "yes".

 Another alternative, is to show all the options for the comment in one
 place and only highlight the option selected from the email.  This would
 let the user get used to "delete" being the 2nd of three choices and hit
 the right one.
