I don't want to ignore all signatures, because something they contain useful information. So I just ignore any poster whose signature reduces the readability of the page. If their judgement is poor enough that they will attach an ugly signature to all their posts, then I'm probably not missing much by not reading their posts anyway.

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

You should respect where bitcoin economy currently is. For now we are in casino stage. Hopefully we'll go further and we'll establish higher levels of system.

Literally every 2nd post contains a signature violently advertising a gambling site or something along those lines.
"violently advertising" wat?

They're not simply "Bit777 - Bitcoin casino" It's

BIT777 ONLIEN CASINO LOTS OF GAME HEAPS GOOD HOUSE EDGE COME MAKE MONEY COME COME COME

That's an example & I don't mean to single out Bit777 what so ever. They're also heavily formatted to really "Jump" out at you. I consider this a fairly violent form of advertising, in the sense that it's very much in your face.

Exactly. I don't see why everyone has to disable their signatures to simply get around this issue. It's a very poor fix to such a problem.

That's right. It is helping members with little BTC to earn more, and helping the economy.

Buying out users signatures as advertisements is being taken to the next level. There is far too many of them. Literally every 2nd post contains a signature violently advertising a gambling site or something along those lines.

To a newcomer this honestly makes the forum & Bitcoin as a whole look like one big joke. A bunch of people who have such little self respect that they use their signature to advertise for a measly $20 or so worth of BTC.

Not to mention the negative affect this has on the management team of the forum in relation to the ad revenue. Why would you want to buy a couple of ad's for a week when you could buy 300 peoples signatures for a month for half the price.

Thoughts?

I see you are not old enough (in forum time) to remember the days before the current signature restrictions. Right now, signatures can only include text and are limited to about three text lines in height. Before these restrictions were put in place, many people had moving gifs or ads that were a whole screen high. Those were obnoxious. People use the brightly colored glow/text combinations because that is what is available to them, be thankful that they are not worse.

You must be one of those people who don't understand what ads do.

So that created an improvement, why not improve it even further?..

It has now come to the point where people buying these signature based advertisements are paying higher to people who make more posts in a select period of time. This is encouraging spam & now not only taking away from the forums from a visual perspective, but a content perspective.

If you see somebody spamming to increase their post count, then you should report that spam. I believe there is a "no spamming" policy for the forum already?

I agree some of the colors used are an eye sore.  I also am aware that's the point.  I gues I'm detuned to advertiseing.  I spent a few years of my life away from decent TV Shows because of advertiseing.  I spent my childhood up into my adult life waitng for a GI Joe and Transformers movie. Only to find out they also became an.advertiseing platform.

It sucks, we have our advanced tech to thank.. What do we do?

This clearly is your reason for anger.  What I suggest is if you are going to put this much effort into posting for the logical. As well as posting for troll food.  That you from time to time save a link or two.  Kindly share them with the advertisers and see if they like what's happening.

I would hope they would moderate these folks themselves. If they fail to even publicly say "hey this fucker is no longer being paid.  We won't lose our money to spammers etc". Then post about that.  Go for the juggler.
