How can I get rid of avatars showing on the Planning board?

Today avatars started showing up on the Planning board.

I find this to be unnecessary clutter. In a proper Agile flow, tasks are not assigned until the sprint is under way, and then that's what the planning board is for.

In addition, AFAIK, we are still unable to set user's avatars for them, so if they don't have a suitable one this is an additional nuisance.

Where's the off switch?
