    Is it that every post made with the iPhone app states "Sent from my iPhone using milepoint", or is that even there if they use a normal browser on their iPhone (actually, I don't know if the Apple World Domination Council permits them to use third party browsers).

    Anyway- that is an advertisement for iPhone. Is Apple paying the House of Miles for that advertising space? If not, is there a way to disable it in the milepoint iPhone app, it's getting quite annoying to see that on so many posts. It also eats screen real estate and forces us to have to scroll down further.

    The phrase you are referring to is built into the MP App and can be disabled by the user on both the iPhone and the iPad. It does not show up if one uses the Safari browser but, IMHO, navigating MP is much easier using the app.

    Sorry it is so annoying to you, G, but I am not removing it! :p;)

    (Edited to add) Perhaps everyone who uses advertising in their signature should be paying House of Miles, too, then?! That also takes up a lot of screen and forces more scrolling!!! ;) :)

    Stony people are notoriously undemonstrative, so don't take his ranting too seriously. He cannot consume apples, you see, because he can just adsorb lichen and such, plus the odd nutrient in water than soaks into him.

    I had a deal with Steve Jobs — he loved us, we loved him and agreed in the mutual admiration society clause that we would not charge each other a fee to basically call out the fact that we both admired the others' product. So, to answer your inquiry ... no money for Milepoint, just love baby, love!

    Easy solution which you control as a member, just like you control the same type message when you send any email from an iPhone or even an iPad — actually, a nod to their brilliant marketing.

    So, here's what you do from the Milepoint app:
    (starting from the bottom right of the iPhone screen once you have logged in)
    More >>> Settings >>> Forum Posting Options >>> Send Signature

    Simply turn "Send Signature" Off or even edit the message to say ... "Sent from my Microsoft Zune that i love so much ... using milepoint".

    As long as they don't start adding specific GPS information I'm ok.

    Which means it's "opt out". I'm an old fashioned "opt in" type of netizen. :)

    Don't be so sure that info isn't in there. :cool:
