I'm just not quite sure I get the reasoning behind the English-only signature?...

I could honestly care less what somebody's signature contains (one of the signatures basically says "lakerdonald is an *******"). It's apparent the majority of the TPs and Mods don't take this stance, but so what if it says "Nice site but you guys are all infidels"? Just my two cents (guess that's why I'm not a mod [well that and the flaming] )

What about the height of all annoyingness - leet speak I personally find that worse than spelling Microsoft with a dollar sign.
I don't think anyone over the age of 12 would be sorry to see that go

I don't think any one really gives a hoot what some one's signature says, as long as its short I don't care if it says "fuxx0rz D@4kb@<kw3rdz", I'd care even less if it was in another language, I have an account on another message board with the sig in Irish. The other rules, the ones about negativity are fine, just so long as you don't go Benito Mousellini over it.

personly i never read the rules til i became a TP though i did know common etiquet for the most part and if if seemed boarderline i either rephrased, explained in more depth as not to offend and thus stay netral for the most part, or simply didnt say it! there was always a PM to a mod/administrator to take care of the offender....that was the past now we simply use the

I personaly dont care what peoples signatures say, as long as its not a big flashing gif or somthing visualy distracting i really dont care. I also dont care is somone calls microsoft "micro$oft winblows" or anything else.. Freedom of expression is more important than trying not to annoy some large corporation or possible future advertising partner. So, I dont really agree with this kind of censorship but it doesnt really affect me right now so.. so be it.
What is decided by the owners of the site is fine by me though and as long as its still usfull then I will still use linuxforums.
