Prevents ZIPs from becoming CBZs

When I try to add a zip file to a given book, the zip automatically transforms into cbz. I read on another thread that the transformation is due to the zip containing only images. Is there a way to change this behavior?
Thanks!

Just a query - if the Zip file only contains image why not treat it as a cbz file?

@wladdy - if you don't want to disable the plugin, you could drop an empty text file into the zip

Maybe because the OP doesn't have or want a .cbz/.cbr reader installed on their machine. There are 'regular' programs that will browse images in a zip or rar - faststone's maxview and the old ACDSEE - are two I know of.
