This is not interesting to you unless you have a WordPress blog, but if you do, take note:
There is a way to remove those awful avatar pictures from your Recent Comments sidebar. Here it is:
—Go to your WordPress Dashboard.
—Click the “Presentation” tab.
—Click the “Widgets” sub-tab.
—Click on the options button within your “Recent Comments” widget. (Note: This doesn’t work that great on Safari; drag the widget around the screen until the button manifests itself. Then return it to your sidebar and click the button.)
—Set “Avatar Size” to “No Avatars.”
—Click “Save Changes.”
Finished! See how not-ugly that is?
