    I want to have the admin bar hidden by default for Subscriber level users. Is that possible?

    Well I don't want to have to go and edit every subscriber's profile.
    This plugin solved my problem:
    I set it so that subscribers don't have an admin bar, all other users do.

    Thanks, photocurio, I was desperately looking for some way to disable it for myself -- it being new, and I being quite able to open the Dashboard in a new tab.

    All these additional bars, on top --- slide-in --- pop-up etc. etc. are the curse of the internet...
