I am starting to get annoyed with the "automatic signature attachment" feature of JR. People make them big and bold, and when I read through the thread where the same person posted several times, I have an impulse to ask "Didn't you already say that in your previous post?" It may be cute to attach some latin phrase or an old joke with your post, but I really think that it is a disrespect for the readers to do it over, and over, and over again. Maybe I am getting old? Remember a guy who was very active in JR (something like 3000+ posts)? He never said anything of substance, but his signature was some 15 lines long, with the endless list of his certifications, random phrases, and assorted and broken links.
I realize that people would still be able to put quotes mannually, but perhaps they will get tired with their own signatures faster if they don't have an ability to attach them automatically.

No disrespect, but it shows a person has moved on in the grand scale of things.
I like the sig feature, and your eyeballs just move past the old ones anyway.But I do agree they should be short.There I have shortened mine.
