I don't so much mind text signatures, but I hate extravagant sig lines with scrolling words, images, and a huge laundry list of the poster's whatever they're bragging about. This is (or was) a huge thing on a lot of automotive forums for a long time - posters would have these huge long sig lines with rotating images of their cars, modifications, the cars they used to own, and usually some kind of quote from a Fast & the Spurious movie. Sometimes the sig would be longer than the post.

On one of the few car forums I still go to, signatures are text-only, but they still seem to have a lot of lists of the member's rides. Mine's a simple note telling of my sponsorship deal with Loostner Brothers' Soap Company.

ISTR that was started by the authors of the articles on the main page. I actually liked that - I usually got a laugh out of them. Never really did it, I'm not clever enough.
