    That's how sigs have been viewed by the mods. Unless a sig is inflammatory or contains a harmful link, it's usually left be. Although we have asked a handful of members to shorten really long ones in obnoxious colors, etc.

    We've also had a few members be offended by another member's sig, even ones that weren't really inflammatory. We deal with those on a case by case basis.

    But, I will say that if someone complains about another member's sig-line, while they have a political or religious one too....the complainant's sig is as likely to be removed as the other.

    I think WV's idea is a good one. If you don't like them, it's pretty easy to just turn them off entirely.


    Can I put this in my siq?

    This made me chuckle, but also sounds like appropriate action by the mods. Judge not, lest ye be judged. Or as my father liked to call it, "hoist with one's own petard" - destroyed by the very means one meant to destroy others.

    I am hopeful mods don't get a lot of these signature issues to deal with. Like WV says, turn sigs off, problem solved. I didn't even know you could turn it off, so I learned something new.

    I didn't know that you could turn them off either. I'm a curious person, so I'll leave it on.

    As of now I enjoy reading the signatures, even if I don't agree with what they say. If the time comes when I don't, I'll do like WV has done.
    Keep movin', keep believing and enjoy the journey!

    I like signatures too. It's a little extra window into people's personalities and interests.



    It can also be a great flag on who not to camp near at a hang.

    The funny thing about signatures,is ..... the longer they are, the less people read them! I love a good quote, but when its two or three paragraphs long, I just ignore them .
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )


    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.

    Embarassing is being the last item in a discount bin.

    No matter where you go, it will never be as cool as it was just before you got there. So thanks for ruining it for everyone.

    I agree here... I have not found any signatures that offended me.
    I tend to ignore them for the most part. However, they are VERY
    helpful in helping to find some tutorials and stuff that people think
    are the most important things.

    I'm a bit surprised that they can be linked to stores and the such,
    as I would think that should stay in vendor sections, but it doesn't
    bother me either way

    I like 'em. Feel I get a bit more intel on the folks on here.
    One of the things in life that I find interesting is when I attend funerals and I always seem to find out something about the person I never knew about them in life. A feller I knew who passed was a Shriner and I never knew that about him and he never revealed that to me.
    I feel the signatures on here are somewhat like that. And they are easy enough not to read if not interested.
