    Just wondering how political our signatures can be, as in the case of David Lambert's in this thread: What was this movie? .

    I have to agree with Alan's concerns on this one (even if I agree in part with the statement).
    It gets old when you see that signature five or six times during a thread (the "Friday the 13th Part 7" petition also comes to mind) and the size of the file really starts to bog down load time for us 56k modem types.
    I started a thread back in June (I think) about signature files and photos getting out of control and this falls into that category. The sentiment is understood and appreciated, but please keep it down size-wise, guys.

    I came here in the process of figuring out how I should ask the exact same question. While I appreciate the importance of both political speech and the importance of allowing minority expression, my impression is that this particular forum does not permit political discussion of this sort. I would be very surprised to learn that such a signature is permissible. I had to restrain myself from replying to the signature and the content it quotes and links to. I personally find the content highly inflammatory and inaccurate.

    Being a passionate person about politics, I often find myself having to watch what I say and censoring myself. If however, we are allowed to say whatever in our sig files, let me know! There are a hell of a lot of people in power in this country today who are hypocrites, and I'd like to be able to say so. [​IMG]
    And to be clear, while I'd like to, I have NO intention of changing my signature.

    Gee, I was surprised that this thread was already here. In a way, even showing the flag is political, but Mr. Lambert's really inflammed me, and after I made the mistake of reading the entire link, I became even madder, but if that is how he feels, then so be it.
    Slightly OT, but I do find it funny that this upcoming 'war' is neither political or religous.
