    On your Preferences is the option for "Show people's signatures with their messages"

    Do you uncheck this option? Or do you keep it enabled?

    At this point-in-time they are enabled as I like to review from time-to-time who is associated with what :) However when some of the "longer' signatures start getting to me I will admit to turning them off :)

    I keep them on. It gives me an idea of the contributor, her/his experience in traveling (say if they are MM on two different airlines, have status with multiple hotel chains....you get the idea), and helps me on deciding whether to, or how to, respond.

    The other thing I sometimes learn from signatures, and this is the case of only a few MPers, is the size of their ego.

    What does it means when a MP has no signature? *Cough* ;-)

    Nada.

    I just choose not to do it.

    To answer my own question for myself: except for being Starbucks Gold, I have no signature because I have no status that wasn't purchased or obtained through some special offer or another. I wouldn't even know where to begin.

    Most signatures are infomative and even intresting, but

    Some Are A Bit Much and
    Border on being an Eyesore.

    I'd like an option to view signatures but block the "Posted from my overpriced iRate using the Milepoint App" advertisements.

    The most interesting signatures are not the ones that are just a list frequent traveler programs and their logos.

    Yes! You noticed. :)

    I saw another member had the same avatar, so I figured that the pic of my pup was a better choice.

    As a new member and someone new to the game, I actually really enjoy the signatures. It is great to see how many different programs and statuses there are out there for me to procure! Perhaps once I am a grizzled veteran I'll be tired of them, but for now, everything is new and shiny :)
