That functionality is not provided by the stock Wordpress, it's a plugin called "Subscribe To Comments" (

It looks like the author would be happy to accept patches that fix these shortcomings.

but there are really enough examples of similar UI-nonsens in original wordpress-core.

The success message above the dialog is normal Wordpress behavior, so the authors of the plugin just followed the existing standard. What they probably didn't think of is that a person commenting in a Wordpress blog does not necessarily own a Wordpress blog him/herself and therefore may not be used to this standard.

The red warning dialog however is just plain wrong – it should be an informational one (and thus with white background).
