post with sig-campaigns are often really bad - although usually they are still just barely on topic so they dont get deleted.

Some are, some aren't.

Well, suppose we do ban the signature campaigns, we can remove the signature space (what if campaigns shift from threads to private messages?) then we will go on to take off avatars... and personal texts.. and usernames (imagine 25 accounts with ilovexyz.com xyzisebst, checkoutxyz)... and threads... and posts ... and the forum...

Signature campaign brings an economy to this forum. It make the account worth something.
If we do not want to signature campaign, then we should remove any facility which can earn poster any amount of money.

They're a source of earnings in the community. You can easily ignore them. There are some chrome extensions out there. Some block well known signatures.

looking for a signature campaign, dm me for that

topic, thanks for answering.

Define "often really bad"...any stats to back that up? For everyone 1 bad post there are 100 good ones.

Better yet, there's a feature in profile settings that allow any one of us to not see the signatures of other posters. It's amazing that people don't use this feature.

Disclaimer: My campaign does not pay me for this post or any posts in Meta.

For campaigns like Yobit, they do not impose any section restriction and results in spammer in those sections irrelevant to Bitcoin like off-topic. Their posts in Bitcoin sections aren't constructive either. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1241968.0. Furthermore, most just give a one-liner response which is marginally constructive.

For campaigns that are stricter and are not bot counted, the quality is significantly better if they go through a selection process. The problem isn't with signature campaigns but it is with the method of managing them.

As said, there are many spammers in the forum and they do not contribute actively to the discussion. There is no use even if you block the signature. That feature is more for people who find fancy signatures annoying.

If you think that removing signature campaigns will end all spam you are deeply mistaken. Go see some other big online communities and forums - Reddit for example.
There are no paid signature campaigns there - yet the spam is overwhelming.
Signature Campaigns for the contrary are making people's posts more constructive imo because most of the campaign managers are not paying for half witted spammy posts.

The spam here is defined differently. Spam is supposed to be someone that with the use of electronic messaging systems sends unsolicited messages (from wikipedia) but here in the forum spam is more like posts that are not constructive which can easily be ignored, I really don't know why people get so mad, you can simply ignore them. At least we dont have people spamming memes or photos every thread or what's worse like youtube which is full of every type of spam possible, memes, people copying jokes, overused memes, pretty much 90% of the comments there are off topic.
