Signatures in posts: Is yours too long?

Tuesday, March 20, 2001 4:57 AM
Bandwidth is more plentiful these days, and Usenet might as well be dead, but I wanted to remind people that it is generally considered bad form to make a signature that is more than three lines long. One day, posts with longer signatures may start to disappear.

While on the subject, I don't care if you put your site's URL in your sig, but please drop promo language like, "The best site for cheese and crackers."

I appreciate your cooperation.

In spite of Jeff's protestations to the contrary, mine still doesn't work right, as the font is still proportional. Furthermore, it seems that I do most of my posting from home using Lynx, so the signature is just in the way anyhow (Lynx text boxes are nasty!). So I think mine will simply vanish, either that or I'll do a website promo or something. :)

That quote is hilarious! It's from the simpsons right? Guess mine fits too, and I think it can relate to what most people are feeling who are here!

Now if that guy who has his top five in his sig would read this. Honestly, do you think anyone cares what your five favorite rides are, let alone cares to read it a dozen times in different threads everyday?
