#5548 new enhancement

A more inclusive commenting policy for P2

Description

Comments on some P2s and on some posts are more actively monitored than others.
While I understand requiring a previously approved comment in order to help combat spam, this can really get in the way of people contributing and having a diversity of opinions within an appropriate timeframe. This policy can contribute to echo chambers and those are uncool.

I would strongly advise that someone who has a previously approved comment on any P2 should be allowed to comment on another P2.
I would recommend at least not requiring comment moderation if the user has author+ caps on any other .org site, to facilitate inter-team collaboration.

To understand the need for this, I ran a query to find out which P2's have the relevant option enabled.

https://make.wordpress.org/hosting/
https://make.wordpress.org/marketing/
https://make.wordpress.org/mobile/
https://make.wordpress.org/themes/
https://make.wordpress.org/tide/
https://make.wordpress.org/training/
https://make.wordpress.org/tv/

And those who don't have it enabled:

https://make.wordpress.org/accessibility/
https://make.wordpress.org/cli/
https://make.wordpress.org/community/
https://make.wordpress.org/core/
https://make.wordpress.org/design/
https://make.wordpress.org/meta/
https://make.wordpress.org/plugins/
https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/
https://make.wordpress.org/support/
https://make.wordpress.org/updates/

I've removed some sites from the list that are either private, or not intended to be commented on.

I personally think that we should simply disable the "users must have had a approved comment" globally for make.
