    Do you always wear blinders? It is naive to assume that a very provocative
    sig will not result in attracting comments.
    I for one will never have a sig because I believe it distracts from the
    point one is trying to make in one's posting.

    I for one don't give a **** about politics, especially when it is in
    another country that I don't live in!

    Too many wars are started by politics and religion, sure everyone has
    there own beliefs BUT don't force it in peoples faces. So piss off with
    your political crap and take it somewhere else!

    but you loose most, if not all credibility VERY quickly. And not

    Consider ditching the sig, not for our sake, but YOURS.
    Save it for a political forum, where it really belongs.

    Then we can go back to discussing all things VZW.

    Short messages (I don't want to get into an argument over whether the
    term "SMS" applies only to the GSM messaging infrastructure), at least
    in the US, can come through Internet e-mail gateways. You can trace it
    as far as the gateway, but you then have the same problem as you have
    tracking down e-mail spam.

    I do not see how any reasonable person would be distracted from my posts

    Then you're not paying attention.

    Do people judge you by the clothes you wear? Do people judge you by the
    words you use, and in what fashion they come out of your mouth? Do people
    judge you by the quality of your teeth? Do people judge you by your odor?
    Do people judge you by your *****ing/grammar? Do people judge you by
    inflammatory newsgroup sigs? OF COURSE they do.

    Two newsgroup users -- whom you consider "unreasonable", of course --
    suggested there is a problem with your sig. I'm suggesting there's a
    problem with your sig. I'll bet you your cell phone bill for a month that
    more than one other person reading this newsgroup has a problem with your
    sig, and they just aren't saying anything.

    Now, as I see it, you can either leave the sig the way it is, and continue
    to allow it to handicap or negate your otherwise useful, informative,
    insightful newsgroup posts, or you can change the sig and remove that
    handicap. I'd suggest you start by adding at least your first name to the
    sig, but that's just me.

    Kevin, John,

    The fact of her beliefs being different from yours, or that upon
    discovering them you are annoyed or distracted is a seperate issue,
    that of you not separating the content of her posts from her political
    beliefs.

    The email headers usually identify the source, just as they do with spam, and
    the same kind of filtering can be easily applied.

    You're arguing over definitions for no reason. You missed the point;
    traditionally the only thing that differentiated a spammer from a
    telemarketer was the means by which they contacted you. They are both
    undesireable and have similar goals - to sell you something - and the
    have no particular care that it's costing YOU money.

    Since they are the same breed, and since the method of contact has
    become an amalgam of email and telephone, the terms can now be applied
    interchangeably, or even in a hybrid term (Telespammers - you heard it
    here first!).

    I have no desire to deal with telemarketers, spammers, or any other
    pushy, obnoxious sales type who ignores my wishes and contacts me in
    an effort to bolster his bottom line - particularly if I'm the one
    paying for the call, and as far as I'm concerned, the best place for
    telespammmers is in landfills.

    If someone wants to ignore what I write because they have a problem with
    my sig, that's their problem, not mine. If they're so ideologically
    stiff necked that they can't stand to see anything that disagrees with
    their narrow views, I don't care whether they read my messages or not.
    Sure there's a chance that I might pose a question that they might be
    able to answer, but choose not to answer because of my sig; however,
    that says more about them than it does about me, and what it says is not
    complimentary.

    And I repeat, it is naive to assume that a provocative sig will not
    result in comments, or that it won't color most people's perceptions
    of the poster.

    I happen to be a Republican, but I never would have entertained
    the idea of posting an "Impeach Clinton" sig in a non-political
    newsgroup. Politics, like religion, is best left to newsgroups
    that deal with those inflammatory issues.

    Well John, apparently Michelle doesn't share your view. i don't either.
    I don't find find her sig to be inflamatory in the least, it is not
    part of the substance of her post. Why don't you just kill file her so
    you don't see it any more?
