Re: Let's ban signatures!

I might come around to the idea of sigs now that I've finally found a quote worthy of one.

"I will not be attending this party. I personally don't find poker and partying to mix well. I see nothing that relates poker to partying. If I wanted to play poker I would just play online or at a local cardroom vs bad players. The food probably won't be any good and just doesn't seem like it is worth my time honestly." - kevmode

How in the world do a few random lines at the end of a post, most of which simply identify the poster, constitute an insult in any way, shape, or form?

- WalterS = dimwit

would be an insult.

- NMHU

is not.

Re: Let's ban signatures!

Seeing as though big obnoxious auto-signatures already aren't part of this site, "banning" signatures really means having the mods make it an infraction-type offense. Most have better uses for their time.

If you can't get your OCD under control than put the users who do it on ignore

kevmode is the exception that proves the rule.

The hilarious thing is that everything he says doesn't appear to have the slightest hint of insincerity.

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.
