Stops WordPress from grabbing a user avatar using their registrated email from gravatar.com.
This is a very simple and lightweight plugin that prevents the user's gravatar being automatically obtained from gravatar.com based on their registered email. This would be useful for sites where users require an extra layer of privacy, or if you just want to prevent potentially silly or embarrasing avatar accidents.
If you're using Identicons or any other generated default avatar, the user should keep a consistent avatar unless they change their registered email.
This plugin is also compatible with other avatar customization plugins such as Avatar Manager, BuddyPress or Add New Default Avatar, since this plugin specifically prevents the gravatar of a specific user email being used and reverts to the default or user-defined avatar.
