Remove URL field from WordPress comments

I got tired of people spamming my site with tools like scrapebox and similar programs.  In a small effort to thwart some of the spam, I’ve removed the comment url field from my blogs in wordpress.  Here is how you can do it

From your root html directory edit the file named wp-includes/comment-template.php

Find the section that looks like this and comment out the two lines in red below as shown.
