How to remove Wordpress auto generated P tags?

I'm using WordPress 3.5 with Thesis 2.0.  It randomly inserts paragraph tags, even when there is no carriage return.  Is there a way to remove these auto generated paragraph tags, at least for specific post?

I'd like to avoid hacking any code since that could break other functionality or even Thesis.

I don't think that can be used in the "Text" editor of Wordpress right?

I believe all you have to do is add the following code to your 'functions.php' file:

remove_filter( 'the_content', 'wpautop' );

Open in new window

I went with a plugin: PS Disable Auto Formatting.  I had to retro fit my posts but I didn't have many.  Works great.
