While I personally don't find it all that distracting, I agree that having the ability to remove it like you would the option to set DDG as your default search engine seems like a good idea. A simple 'X' to have it removed should be simple enough.
Although, they probably want to avoid doing that as I'm sure there are plenty of people who would see that they have the ability to remove it and then do so without actually seeing what it has to say.
If that is the case, having the option hidden deep in the settings somewhere is still a possibility and I'm sure it would lower the amount of people who remove it before reading it.

We're thinking about updates for this--sorry for any annoyance.
