This isn't going to happen...

Yeah, removing Gravatar support wouldn't speed up WordPress. Even in the slightest, really. What it would do is affect millions of blogs and users which use them.

Just supporting nacin here, Moving it to a plugin would make core neither faster, nor "lighter"

No it doesn't. I'd go into more detail, but instead I'd appreciate it if in this and future tickets, you use more than a word or two at a time in trying to justify something.

I appreciate your feedback, sir! It is my bad writing, sorry. I know u are a master of this program but have feeling you do not understand my wish.

My try to explain better:

When I look the option web in WordPress with Gravatar support, it looks a lot of them takes much place for a limited when you look to other pages.

It's a great stuff for bloggers to have these images next to name. But. With a CMS this is not what it need that much. Do want not to prevent all users out there to make of use it, but offer them to have it better in a plugin. No need to load that much always. Can you understand? Blogs which need support can have, no problem at all. I think you name that Plugin Material.

While not able to offer that in a plugin and u see nothing possible to make this not break blogs then you must thing harder. Can you understand?

Not read me wrong. If too complicated to do, you can say. No problem. I just have this idea and that is all for now so not very much for the work. Just the idea and no idea how to do that now, sorry.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
