[wp-hackers] making the code editor the default view

See http://akismet.com/buy/non-profit/
And our organization doesn't qualify for the half-price or free options.  We 
have to pay full price, which is $50/month or $550/year.

As far as it being slower, if it was part of the core and loaded every time 
someone looked at the blog, the blog would be slower.  As a plugin, I can 
delete it and never even have to think about it.

[rant] Note that big non-profits that pay their executives 6-figure salaries 
get to use Akismet for free.  But a small _volunteer_ group, on a shoestring 
budget, like ours has to pay $550/year for Akismet. [/rant]

Wait, not free? I don't remember paying anything for it... Or am I
missing something here? I haven't had booze or anything for near two
years now, so I know for sure I wasn't drunk and shelled out money for

I didn't notice my blog being slower because of "it". I can't delete
those things because I'm on SVN. Even IF I did delete it, it would come
back again when I went to do a "svn up"... so, it just sits there sigh.
But yeah, I don't notice the blog being slower because of "it".. :P
