Disable Word Count (5 posts)

    Is there any way to disable the word count? I know it's persnickety, but it annoys the heck out of me to see that thing updating constantly. I would much rather have something either that only updates when you save the post or not at all. I'm sure there's some way to turn it off, but I don't know of it as I'm really just getting started.

    I'm referring to the word count, not the auto-save. Are they intimately tied to each other such that disabling the one disables the other?

    Thanks.

    Not sure if this will screw up something else, but removing a line with "wp_enqueue_script('word-count');" from "post.php" seemed to work. Anyone know if this will cause something else to bomb?

    Thanks again.
