An issue has arisen in relation to members signatures which if created appear at the bottom of each post they make.  This is not the first time that we have been asked to remove or alter a signature so we require a policy which is acceptable to everyone.  This is your opportunity to have your say.

The signature function has been temporarily suspended.  As it stood it allowed for up to 300 characters over two lines.  Smileys could be added if desired.

It has been suggested that any signature which another member deems to be distasteful or objectionable should not be allowed.

Over to you, please make your views known.

I don't think anything should be allowed which could be seen as goading or insincere.  Anything seen as controversial should also not be allowed.

Not a frequent occurrence, but I agree with Angelo.

I think that suggestion is too broadly worded.  Personally I would be content to leave any moderation of signatures to the good sense of yourself and others on the Admin team.

Signatures that are offensive or likely to provoke a  negative response from other members, I don’t think should be allowed.
However the offended party should explain why it is offensive to him/her, if it is not already obvious.

Discard it altogether. Doesn't this forum stand for justice, not propaganda?

It is just temporary measure, Sadie, until things are sorted out.  They have all been suspended.
BTW It's nice to see you back here again.

I agree Anna however I do take exception to offensive remarks masquerading as biblical quotes. It doesn't take a genius to work out the real thrust of such comments without anyone explaining it.

Lest we forget it was you who instigated all this hand wringing about signatures by insisting that  my siggie was removed though why a grown man would carp on for pages and pages about a quote he could have ignored I simply have no idea.

BTW having more important things to worry about I don't give a tinker's cuss what posters have as a signature. If I don't like it I'll simply ignore it  ?{)(**

'The archiving of the case was determined by the fact that public prosecutors hadn't managed to obtain sufficient evidence of the practice of crimes by the appellants.
'There is therefore a significant, and not merely a semantic difference, between the legally admissible foundations of the archive ruling.
'It doesn't therefore seem acceptable that the ruling, based on the insufficiency of evidence, should be equated to proof of innocence.'

Oddly enough, since I joined I have found signatures the fastest way to learn of people's opinions and/or character.  After that, I need to plough through long threads.  I get to much the same conclusion but it takes me a lot longer.

Allow signatures.  Weed out anything that is illegal (obvious).  Weed out anything that is uncivil (it's a forum and we should be civil to each other, whether we agree with each other or not).  Otherwise it degenerates to PM's question time, which is one of the most childish farces on the planet.

Hello, as I remember, my sig was a comment in Turkish.    If someone in admin or a mod would like to pm it to me (forgotten exactly what it said) I am happy to translate it.   It was not an insult, derogatory or rude.   Puffin   *&(+(+

Yes why would a grown man bother about pursuing the truth of the matter, crazy isn't it?  Especially when the allegation is so serious, hardly worth bothering about is it?
