The New GUI Template Editor, And Removing The "Blog Posts" Gadget

Since the most important part of almost all Blogger blogs is the posts, the "Blog Posts" gadget is an essential element in the template. Sometimes we have to remove the gadget though - maybe the gadget is corrupt - or in odd cases, we may have a duplicate "Blog Posts" gadget.

In either case, the solution is known, and is quite simple.
Remove (the / one) "Blog Posts" gadget.
Unfortunately, not everybody, needing such advice, is able to do this. People using the Template Editor in the New Blogger GUI (2011) may find, to their frustration, that removal of a "Blog Posts" gadget isn't permitted.

Sometimes, when we advise someone to remove a "Blog Posts" gadget, we find the advice not well received.
It won't let me do that!
or
I get a bX code, when I try to save the change!
Apparently, somebody who designed the New GUI Template Editor decided that removing "Blog Posts" just isn't a necessary option.

Right now, if you're going to remove "Blog Posts", you have to switch back to the Classic GUI.
