It is based on the commentors email address and would be the same at any site that uses the default setup. Below are twenty randomly generated wavatars so you can get the idea what this plugin does:


I don’t often talk about this kind of thing. But I like the idea of how this one works so I felt it was worth posting. Also the creator of the plugin has a pretty nice blog which can be found here.

Here are the ones I do see: Talking Out Of Turn, Murphyzville, The Right Side of the Boat, Scuffulans hirsutus , Zona Cerebral, and The Hotel Blues. […]
