Disable Content Readability Analysis

Yoast SEO 3.3 included a content analysis to help users write high-quality content that actually ranks. We definitely recommend using it, but in response to user feedback, you can disable the content analysis site wide or per user.

The ability to disable the content analysis was added in version 3.3.2
