I see there's a filter for user_contactmethods and user_profile_picture_description but not for the bio.

@wordpresssites Do you mean a filter for "Share a little biographical information to fill out your profile. This may be shown publicly." in tags/4.4.2/src/wp-admin/user-edit.php#L437 or a filter for the description of a user?

Line 431 to 438 so the whole box and header/description text can be removed/modified. Personally, i just want to remove it conditonally for non admins.

If we'd make this field removable, we should also make the other fields removable, for the sake of consistency.

For this, we should use the Settings API or the upcoming Fields API.

See #16413, #28754,

+1 on waiting, Fields API would be my choice, using Settings API in an expanded context should be avoided at this time.

Fields API already supports removal of controls from the user profile, so that's a plus :)
