I noticed while perusing today someone suggested how one might "preference" out signatures and the like when viewing posts, describing them as "guff"

Are they guff?

I put a photo and spec of my car that I assumed other MB enthusiasts might enjoy, however, I've seen a couple of signatures that talk about picking up a turd by the clean end, which doesn't sit comfortably with me.

What do the panel think?

A bit of individuality in the anonymity of the Internet is a good thing.

I like mine. The big white dog had to be put to sleep a few weeks ago so it makes me smile when I see him there. Alice? who F*** is Alice?

Express your self as you see fit. Our part of the world is free after all.

A splash of colour harms no one.

I like the Avatars but am with you on unessessary verbiage which is often added.

Why not, as long as they're not offensive.

If the option to disable them is there as a personal choice when viewing, I don't see why they should be a problem :)

I like the avatars. They are personal, I'm getting to the stage that I can recognise many of the regulars by their avatars without looking at the name. As long as the signatures are not offensive I have no real problem with them although seeing the same large image many times in the same thread can be a bit off-putting.

I dont see the harm, as you can choose not to look at them.

Wonder who would be voted as having the most instantly-recognisable avatar...

Dunno, but I tend to use them to recognise people more easily rather than read. I'd be sad if we could not use them.
