I can see that many people seem to be begging for a few bitcoins in their signature (me too!) ,
but when i check their addresses in blockexplorer, they invariably appear empty. Let's just admit that technique doesn't work and start actually doing something useful to earn some BTC... What do you think?

For me a forum address is first and foremost a cultural thing. If you are a part of the Bitcoin community, you should have a Bitcoin address associated with you.

And, it was also supposed to encourage the culture of embracing Bitcoin's power of low-friction transactions to express gratitude in the form of microdonations. It's not a huge success.

but when i check their addresses in blockexplorer, they invariably appear empty.
My forum address is not empty.

Let's just admit that technique doesn't work
It doesn't matter if people tip you or not, they should have the option.

and start actually doing something useful to earn some BTC...
The forum address is meant to be used to earn BTC for useful things that cannot be otherwise monetized. But I haven't heard of a forum address standing in the way of anyone doing useful things that can be monetized.

*BEGIN SHAMELESS ADVERTING*
Well if you are looking to do something useful for btc, write short articles for me for half a cent a word, more if delivered in big batches.
Most of the articles I need an almost identicle duplicate for anyway, so you will be paid for the duplicate too which will be easy to make Cheesy
Pm me for more info.
