You refer either to Bronze_Wu’s signature or “that written formula for ending letters” (the Sincerely-yours-stuff) – neither of which, obviously, violate forum rules
Have you noticed that some member signatures include links to personal or company websites? I for one do not feel it necessary to edit them, even though such sigs would have nothing to do with a post (have you ever looked at mine? )
Furthermore, if someone chose to end their post with a friendly “Fuck off asswipes,” – chances are a moderator would take it off without a second thought (and you might not even merit a warning – unless you were a repeat offender).
In case you forget, this is a discussion forum, my friend. We have rules, but enforcing them ain’t a science – in fact, I’m counting on the moderators to use their personal judgement in keeping their forums healthy. So if you’re sig is going to advertise your company or services – be my guest. If instead you plan on using the space to promote Nazi memorabilia – then I’m gonna have a problem with you (surprise, surprise)
Folks, the idea here is to keep the forums as relevant and useful as possible. Sure, it’s also about being entertained – a little levity never hurt anyone. Indeed, a sense of humor is more than welcome.
But, hey, cut us (the moderators) some slack – we’re trying to keep a sense order in these discussions… FREE of charge(!) for crying out loud! Last I time I checked, I happen to be the only moderator who does not have a real day job (and you better believe I keep myself busy in other ways)
So save the smart ass “his sig broke your rules” comments – I much more appreciate it if you wrote in with meaningful reasons why a certain post really is inappropriate. Hell, teach us something – you might find that we are reasonable people after all
