Signatures make sense, I want to see them, but there are still a few just wasting space %@(€# over more than three lines!

Those who issue long sermons on these fora should put their names at the bottom so one doesnae have to go back to the top to see whose wisdom one has just read, or often only scanned :wink:

Signatures turned off. I don't want to see use of divisive terms for cyclists, long lists of bikes, supposedly witty comments and googled quotes of Chinese philosophers or literary luminaries that I suppose are meant to show how well read you are (Google search often means only Google is well read most posters are only well read on forums). Of course if the quotations in your signature is genuinely read and genuinely used I do apologize but I've been increasingly negative about posters on forums so I do think the worst (often get good reason for that).

Signatures showing for me, especially by learned members who write long sermons, one spends ten minutes or more reading their wisdom, then forgets the name of the author and has to go back to the top :wink:
