Change basic settings of comment options

First thing I always do when installing a fresh Wordpress is switching off the discussion options. It should defailt to “off” (non active) if you ask me. Because novice users don’t do this, resulting in loads of spam to their sites as well as heavy traffic. If people want to use it, they are well capable of switching them on later on.
