Some people are angry that it is an arbitrary editorial control mechanism, so there’s been a huge fracas on the wp-hackers email list. Quite hilarious, actually, given the relatively small impact that the code itself has.

Lost amongst all of the brouhaha was John Bloch’s contribution on how to easily remove the filter:

Simply add that code to your functions.php file and call it a day 🙂
