Maybe the only people who seem to be bothered by it are those who have posted to that effect, but perhaps it should occur to you that many people dislike it but think it not worth commenting, particularly because you've been pretty clear about what they think.

I'd be willing to bet quite a lot that if the membership at large were polled, > 66% would say they consider it annoying.

(fwiw, while I dislike all signatures, for me it's the emoticon that is most egregious — to me, that particular emoticon says "I'm eight years old, and you just read my post anyway — hah hah!")

How about removing that emoticon, tompakee?
I don't want to see these instead though:

lol +1. And since I have no idea what "Is mise" means, the emoticon evokes some corny uncle laughing at his own joke that no one gets.

I wonder if NMHU knows that every time he posts his screen name is attached to said post, eliminating the need for a signature?

Pretty much my thoughts.

Your username and an avatar of your choice are already displayed.

We don't need anything more to identify people. Whether it be a line of text, your name, or an image someone bedazzled in photoshop.

Re: Let's ban signatures!

I can see signing your real name as it isn't otherwise on the post and personalizes the message, but signing your username is just pointless and annoying.

Re: Let's ban signatures!

Well, as Lee already pointed out, a lot of people were used to signing things, since back in the olden days, you signed all your letters.

Honestly, though, I don't understand why seeing something simple like

-NMHU

bothers people.

Getting riled up over something so tiny (and also so pervasive on the internet) seems like a sure way of going through the day in a bad mood.

I don't find -NMHU annoying at all but Is mise Tompakee() is ridiculous.

Putting Is mise Tompakee r on every post is so eccentric that I kinda like it.

Re: Let's ban signatures!

signatures are tilting and i have ranted about them in the past

currently there is a wanker named bernie posting a lot in the politics forum who signs 100% of his posts "-b"

one sentence, one word, everything "-b" at the bottom.

what is wrong with you people? should be a snap ban for anyone doing it on posts that are not lengthy diatribes or 'official' type statements or letters.

You need to monitize this mutha out and find out how much a user will pay for the ability to edit out Topmakee's sig on every post.

Things like:

Ban op

-NMHU

Or:

+1

-NMHU

Are pretty annoying and pointless imo
This sums up my feelings exactly. A long, content rich post with an attached signature, although not necessary, is tolerable. 1 liners with a sig should be considered ban worthy

Posts where people complain about stuff and say it's ban worthy should be ban worthy.

Right, it seems so pointless to me to sign a post with a made-up screen name. Even more pointless is to sign a post with an abbreviation of said made-up screen name. If you know what it stands for, you already knew who made the post. And if you don't know what it stands for, now you have to look for the screen name to figure it out.
