I think this is what you are looking for:

inhibit-splash-screen is a variable defined in `startup.el'.
Its value is t

Non-nil inhibits the startup screen.
It also inhibits display of the initial message in the `*scratch*' buffer.

This is for use in your personal init file (but NOT site-start.el), once
you are familiar with the contents of the startup screen.

You can customize this variable.

Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.
