The custom field allows you to turn comments ON for a particular
page. Basically the page.php code has a bit in there that says, if
CustomFieldX is present, show the comments form.
So... by default, no comments on pages. If you want comments on a
particular page, add the custom field to that page.
I use it -- my WordPress plugin is on a page (less transient than a
blog post), and gets comments. Other pages don't need comments, and
don't have them.
Here's the code:
<?php if ( get_post_custom_values('comments') ) comments_template
() // Add a key+value of "comments" to enable comments on this page ?>
