 Within `/wp-admin/edit-comments.php`, one might check out a posted link
 before verifying the comment's legitimacy.

 While doing so, we're sending the linked site that their comment got
 through; plausibly opening yourself to complications.

 Whatever the reason may be, I don't think we should give spammers any

 To resolve this, simply add `rel=noreferrer` to those links.
