would be an insult.
I guess insulting may not be the best word but I'm not sure what the word is. Disrespectful maybe or just plain inconsiderate. They are making people read the same meaningless lines of text over and over and over again (or at least attempting to until they get ignored). Inconsiderate is probably what I should have said.
I really don't know why people are arguing with me here. Maybe I haven't presented my ideas in the best manner possible, but it doesn't seem like there is much of a debate that most signatures suck.
And just to be clear I'm talking about signatures like tompakee's. Not Mason's or Nate's or even NMHU's.
I understand the complaint that it would just be more work for mods, but I don't think it's much more at all. There are very few people that use signatures like tompakee's and it wouldn't take long at all to eliminate them.
A simple rule change and a post in the mod forum, and then a few PMs/warnings to the offenders and POOF, problem solved.
