Currently I'm using Simple Local Avatars on several of my blogs allowing people to upload their own custom avatar.

As far as I know Simple Local Avatars uses get_avatar to check whether a custom avatar is selected, if not defaults to Gravatar.com.

Would it be possible to disable the Gravatar.com bit somehow, disabling Gravatar.com completely and returning just some local hosted image if no custom avatar is selected?

I hope it would be OK to post this here, but this would be the Simple Local Avatars file

If you want a super-lightweight solution and don't mind dabbling in a little code, drop this in your functions.php;

function __default_local_avatar()
{
    // this assumes default_avatar.png is in wp-content/themes/active-theme/images
    return get_bloginfo('template_directory') . '/images/default_avatar.png';
}
add_filter( 'pre_option_avatar_default', '__default_local_avatar' );

Alternatively, if you want a bit more juice, with the ability to manage everything in the admin, check out Add New Default Avatar.

UPDATE: I wrote a quick plugin to be used alongside Simple Local Avatars.

<?php

/**
 * Plugin Name: Disable Default Avatars
 * Plugin URI: http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/17413
 * Description: To be used alongside <a href="http://www.get10up.com/plugins/simple-local-avatars-wordpress/">Simple Local Avatars</a>, disabling all default avatars and falling back to a single image. Use the filter <code>local_default_avatar</code> to set the path of the image.
 * Version: 1.0
 * Author: TheDeadMedic
 * Author URI: http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/users/1685/thedeadmedic
 */

if ( !function_exists( 'get_avatar' ) ) :
/**
 * Retrieve the avatar for a user who provided a user ID or email address.
 *
 * @since 2.5
 * @param int|string|object $id_or_email A user ID,  email address, or comment object
 * @param int $size Size of the avatar image
 * @param string $default URL to a default image to use if no avatar is available
 * @param string $alt Alternate text to use in image tag. Defaults to blank
 * @return string <img> tag for the user's avatar
*/
function get_avatar( $id_or_email, $size = '96', $default = '', $alt = false ) {
    if ( ! get_option('show_avatars') )
        return false;

    static $default_url; // use static vars for a little caching
    if ( !isset( $default_url ) )
        $default_url = apply_filters( 'local_default_avatar', get_template_directory_uri() . '/images/default_avatar.png' );

    if ( false === $alt)
        $safe_alt = '';
    else
        $safe_alt = esc_attr( $alt );

    if ( !is_numeric( $size ) )
        $size = '96';

    $avatar = "<img alt='{$safe_alt}' src='{$default_url}' class='avatar avatar-{$size} photo avatar-default' height='{$size}' width='{$size}' />";
    return apply_filters( 'get_avatar', $avatar, $id_or_email, $size, $default, $alt );
}
endif;

function __limit_default_avatars_setting( $default )
{
    return 'local_default';
}
add_filter( 'pre_option_avatar_default', '__limit_default_avatars_setting' );

if ( is_admin() ) :
function __limit_default_avatars( $defaults )
{
    return array( 'local_default' => get_bloginfo( 'name' ) . ' Default' );
}
add_filter( 'avatar_defaults', '__limit_default_avatars' );
endif;

?>

The plugin description should be self-explanatory, but essentially the default avatar is http://wordpress-theme-path/images/default_avatar.png, which can be filtered in your theme's functions.php if it exists elsewhere;

function __my_theme_default_avatar( $url )
{
    return 'http://somewhere/else.jpg';
}
add_filter( 'local_default_avatar', '__my_theme_default_avatar' );

Almost :) This sets a new default avatar, instead of ie. the mystery man. Would it be possible to disable Gravatar support completely as well, and just be able to choose between yours and Simple Local Avatars? –  Cor van Noorloos May 17 '11 at 10:52
    
Check my revised answer. –  TheDeadMedic May 19 '11 at 10:37
    
Hi DeadMedic, In short, you're awesome (: More than appreciated! –  Cor van Noorloos May 19 '11 at 17:33
