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.
 
My avatar seems to cheer people up, cant be a bad thing these days.
 
just a bit of fun,some are food for thought,let them stay.
 
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.

Amen to that :D

I like the Avatars but am with you on unessessary verbiage which is often added.
 
guff, and adblocked accordingly so I never see them.
 
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.
