I'm still looking for the exact parts in the core code that I have to delete to get rid of that blessed gift to humanity.
I don't want the theme to slog through something to filter something that it shouldn't digest in the first place. I don't want to go through each and every user, either. I also don't want to load up yet another plugin, just for that. And most decidedly, a solution à la display:none is verboten. Just a plain old delete in the core code will do.
So, does anyone have a suggestion about which lines in which files to eradicate?
Anticipated thanks for that answer!
