I love that fact there's no sigs here.
I realize it's a result of high traffic, but I wish it was policy 'cause I don't like how much wasted time and space sigs add to my life.

And since the DU Lounge appears to be mostly irreverent I will say this:
superkalafragelousilexpeealadocious.

1. The notice that sigs are turned off...
takes up more time and space than my actual signature.

2. It's not about you
If I only had to be distracted and scroll by your sig - and yours alone - then I wouldn't mind sigs.
Problem is I gots to look at ALL the sigs - text and pics - OVER AND OVER again.

And yes, I know I can turn sigs off (for those about to tell me)

Call me a wasted bandwidth crusader!

6. Psst....
While my statement was factual, it was intended to be funny.

Who defines wasted bandwidth? Those who like the sigs can have them; those who don't, turn them off.

9. You speak for "everyone else"?
I'd wager that many people don't like sigs. Often they're large and distracting.

I'd be happy if people were forced to present themselves on an ongoing basis rather than relying on a regurgitated message over and over.

14. Why not ditch the persecution complex?
There's things that annoy me about DU too, but I don't whine OH NOES!!11 about it, I take advantage of the features built into the board software to not see them.

Or, you know, act like an adult and ignore them. What a concept.

23. So, are you really that dense, or are you just having fun acting that way?
Enquiring minds want to know.

21. What? "You speak for "everyone else"?"
Where the hell did you get that from? Because it wasnt from my post. When I read your message I noticed that you were a new member. I thought you may not know that it was an option to see sigs or not. In the middle of making my post I needed to step away from the computer before I posted. So when I got back to post, you had already made your post about how you knew this option was available, that I had not read until after my post was made. All I can say about this now, is that I feel lucky I know where the ignore option is too.

11. What about all the other people?
It's not about me, correct. Or you. Or him.

It's about everyone who must put up with sigs polluting the forum.

17. I love a good quote
they might be humorous, informative or inspiring, or some combination. Like these two:

"Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we."
George W Bush, accidentally telling the truth

"I prophesy to you this evil man will plunge our Reich into the abyss and will inflict immeasurable woe on our nation. Future generations will curse you in your grave for this action." Erich Ludendorff

19. The point is that no one "must" put up with sigs.
Turn them off if you don't like them.

Not everyone considers sigs to be "pollution."

You think they're bad here? Stop by a cutesy parenting forum on, say, Delphi some time.

24. Why limit choice? If they're allowed, people that don't like them can
turn them off. However, if they aren't allowed, people that do like them don't have an option to turn them on.
