Can I in that case use empty spaces as my signature? Like now? There are some coming automatically under this text...

While that may be the subject of the most serious discussion, there are a few other threads in action.

I mean I hate it all, but I hate the registered trademark symbol more than the smiley because you have clearly not registered it and I think it is misleading and is a violation of trademark law.

also you have amused me in ATF with using different smileys as indicative of your feelings to posts you quoted.

Lol the ® was added as a lot of people started copying my sig but i understand your dislike of something false and i will from now on change it just for you.

OK so my original sig was


Is misé Tompakee®

Keep up the good work

This seemed to upset a few people in the fulltilt thread and a mod kindly asked me if i would mind dropping the "keep up the good work" bit to appease the butthurt little girls who were crying about it. This was duly noted by myself and i promptly agreed to do this. I also dared to use my sig in BBV. I was quite quickly told that sigs are not allowed in BBV and when i read the forum rules sure enough it states NO SIGNATURES!. I PM'd the mod in question, aplologised for breaking the forum rules and have never used it there since.

Over 300,000 members on this site and mods seem to be pandering to the whims of what? 50, 60 ,70? Is it because they are the "OLD SCHOOL" and have a join date of pre 2010? They sound like a bunch of old men in a nursing home moaning about how kids have it so damn easy today and back in their day there was no fancy facebooks, IPADS, or signatures at the end of posts!

Well welcome to the 21st century geezers it's a new world order.

So first it's just a tiny number of people complaining and you'll change if a large percentage want that, but now that the percentage is there, you're trying to minimize the total number. Move goalposts much?

LOL, what? I think you have this a little backwards.

But keep up the good work; I have no doubt that a big contributor to a rule being given serious consideration has been the way you've handled yourself in this thread.

TBH i found this thread funny at first and thought wtf is all the crying over 3 words and a smiley. But as it went on i seen that a small minority are trying to bully through a rule so it suits THEM not the majority of posters on the site. Have i been trolling them and having some fun on quiet days in the office? Well i am sure not many can claim they haven't at some stage (even seen you do it once or twice Bobo)

But seriously calling for instabans and hanging by the nutsack while chickens peck my eyes out (no one really asked for that but you get the message) for doing something thats NOT EVEN AGAINST THE RULES! Seems a bit silly to me but if mods/owners wish to ban sigs in all threads then i will of course bow to their almighty powerful wishes as i am sure all others with sigs will do.

I'm curious; what are you basing this on? Because the subject of signatures has come up many, many times in ATF. Every time, the majority of posters express negative opinions of them. Now we have a poll, and the vast majority are against anything more than a real name sig, and a smaller majority are against even that much. So since all evidence thus far would seem to indicate that most people on 2+2 don't care for sigs, what makes you think it's a small minority?

But I agree that some people are getting waaaay to upset about this.

It's not the vast majority of posters it's the vast majority of people in a certain forum that are getting upset. Obviously i don't expect a poll of 300,000 accounts lol but seriously 89 people have voted to ban sigs! Of those 89 people i would say 10 are hardcore totally against sigs and if questioned the rest would probably laugh and say they don't really give a flying ****.

Is the vulgar avatar thread still open? I think i will go there and and scream and cry and constantly PM mods about removing WalterS avatar as i deem it to glorify gun crime and it upsets me so much i cannot sleep at night!

Right, and you might notice that I'm not claiming a vast majority of posters are against signatures. However, you are claiming that a small minority of posters are against them, and I'm asking you what you are basing that on.

Wait, what? So now you're claiming that only ~10% of people voting against avatars actually mean it? Seriously?? And you're basing this on...?

Um, go ahead. I don't see what your point is though; I've heard nothing about anyone ITT constantly PMing mods, and I've seen no reason to believe that people ITT complaining about sigs like yours aren't being completely sincere about their complaints, whereas you clearly aren't. And if you think a poll about avatars like WalterS's would have a result anything like this one, you're kidding yourself.
