I don't know if opt out is what we should be aiming at but it is still much better than nothing.

Maybe gravatar visibility to not-logged-in users should be opt-in? Presumably those Bugzilla add-ons that I hear about would have the ability to restore the gravatar to people who have "opted out" anyway.
Marking as verified - opt out works, thanks! (I also like the idea to disable gravatar for not-logged-in users)
