Default Stop Signing Your Posts

Hello everyone.

Basically this is a mini-rant post for me, but I'm hoping that some people might feel the same.

STOP SIGNING EVERY DAMN POST YOU MAKE!!!

(composing myself again)

Well, now that that little outburst is over with, in all seriousness why do people sign the posts they make here at Heresy?

It's not like we can't see what you've posted AND find out who you are (hint the big name to the left usually beside your custom chosen picture).

It's not as if before people started doing that, everyone found themselves thinking "damn that was a great post, if only I knew who wrote it ... drats".

So to everyone who signs their posts, please stop. It's the equivilant of wearing sunglasses indoors; meaning it's very annoying and makes you seem like a self loving latent homosexual, which I do realise is incredibly offensive to annoying, self loving, latent homosexuals everywhere.

You do realise that nearly every post in this thread will probably be signed?

People do it, but it's small, and pointless; so that much I agree.

But I don't like his attitude towards wearing sunglasses inside!

Actually i can relate because it irked me too but it is a small contingent of people on heresy and i guess i got used to it

on a more important note wearing sunglasses indoors is in no way cool
sunglasses look good but indoors or at night your just trying too hard

deathbringer, because being a douche is fun

kudos to lillian thorne for the awesome sig

What the heck have I started?

Everyone is going to be doing it now, if for no other reason than to piss me off lol.

I should get a mod to change the name of the thread to 'Sign Your Own Name And Feel Special' thread lol.

Well if I can't beat you I might as well join you.

As a side note, I think this signing lark, has the potential to be more corrupting than Chaos, I think people will start doing it in droves soon.

Sigh ...

It is a bit annoying, but nothing to start a thread over.

And sunnies inside can be cool. You just gotta have the right attitude (or should I say badditude?). Besides, it's important to protect your eyes inside as well- fluorescent lighting is very harsh these days!
