Don't enable Gravitar by default in the forum


When I created an account on this forum, though I tried to choose a username and user that would retain my privacy, it used Gravitar by default. Lots of sites do this, but I consider it to be an invasion of privacy unless it is requested. I saw this and immediately changed it in my profile, and I would remove my Gravitar completely to avoid this, however other sites where I do want to use it don’t provide other options. Either making the user select the avatar as part of the creation process or not defaulting to Gravitar would be better for privacy.
