Feature pointers are a nice way to say what's new. Unfortunately they will quickly became boring when someone has to manage many blogs, which were recently upgraded to new WP version. Therefore I ask for new link "Dismiss all".

Update: as an alternative, you can add a check box "do not show other feature pointers" in FP box.

I'm not really down with this one. If someone is doing a bunch of sites and is getting annoyed, they can remove them with code before logging in.

Agree with Jane; this is not something that deserves an option in the UI.

Here's the code that will disable the pointers entirely:

add_action( 'admin_init', function() {
	remove_action( 'admin_enqueue_scripts', array( 'WP_Internal_Pointers', 'enqueue_scripts' ) );
} );

Would be nice to have a more "official" way of doing it.
