    Signatures - on or off

    I go back and forth on this. I've just turned signatures off again, so apologies if I appear to have forgotten your name, political or religious preference, or current manifestations of whimsy. Just so I wouldn't be accused of having a double standard, I've removed my own signature, so others won't be forced to read it.

    My opinion is signatures are kind of frivolous. And a lot of people let them get out of control, and way too long. I've got no problem with this move, but then again, I didn't have one to begin with.

    I tend to ignore people's signatures.
    In no way do I think they are "forcing" people
    to read them.

    Were you offended by others signatures?
    Or by how they were used?
    Or did someone complain about your signature?

    None of the above. I just find them distracting. I don't have strong feelings either way, which is why I've changed my mind more than once.

    Pros: A few have funny quotes.
    I actually learn things from some, like what are the missing vowels in "hppyfngy".
    Some have real names.
    A few have links I might want to follow, such as cottage industries.

    Cons: I'm not good at ignoring them.
    There are lots of them, and the level of distraction is cumulative.
    Some seem to be telling me what I ought to think, or worse yet, what I ought to eat.

    YMMV

    I find this interesting. I turned it on on my pc , but I typically only use taptalk on my phone. I assumed it didn't work. Maybe my signature is always there, I just can't see it.

    Ditto! Just started using Tapatalk a few weeks ago and don't see them. Although I do miss seeing where everyone 's from...

    I also turned them off. Some are too long, some I find annoying, and I don't really need to see any of them more than once.

    Essentially because of their repetitiveness they function as spam to my eyes. (And not the nice, meaty kind...)
