This plugin inserts a checkbox into the comment form for users who don’t have a Gravatar (based on the e-mail they typed in). If they check the box and submit their comment, it will initiate the first step of signing up for Gravatar, on their behalf. They’ll receive an e-mail directly from Gravatar and will have to follow the instructions there to complete the process.
