Well, obviously I am making money from a sig campaign, even though my sig is advertising a dud product. Don't ask me how or why, but they give me btc despite the fact I may or may not be almost unanimously ignored and/or derided as a known fool.

I do not agree that this forum has become totally saturated with junk posts, not entirely.
The more technical areas are still good, and some of the more philosophical discussions still hold value for me.
Economics are discussed at length and I for one have learned from these discussions.
Also, I wholly support a moritorium  on sig campaigns. I mean it when I say IDGAF, not just Internet but to your face.
You can bitch about quality or purity or motive, but in the end it is what YOU bring to the table that makes the difference.

Yes, delete all sigs... This forum is becoming really trashy with all the members promoting scams in sigs and how it encourages shill accounts or pointless posts.

I didn't realize there was a thread already (I created a new one in the New Forum Software section), but yeah, I support removing the signatures.

Yes it does, however the mods/admins do fight aggressively against spam like posts and when accounts start to make too many pointless posts they will ban them (along with other accounts that are owned by the same person).

Paid signatures do however also give people incentives to participate in our community, which will lead to a greater adoption of bitcoin as well as give people a way a earn their first small amounts of bitcoin which will hopefully lead them to later buy larger amounts

Why is it disabling freedom? Facebook doesn't have signatures and I've never seen anyone complain about it. Neither does Twitter, or commenting platforms such as Disqus.

 I know I'm wearing a signature,but I agree with him. It should be removed, the forum is filled with spammers and unnecessary posts. Signatures shouldn't be removed, signature campaigns should be banned. There are a lot of people who use signatures for their own ventures and I fully support them. If you want signatures removed I would like to suggest an idea and have it be a hero/legendary member privilege.

To those who want to know why I am wearing a signature is because I have no use for it,so why not maximize my profits.

But every bbforum does have them and it's part of the freedom. It would be really pointless on FB and on twitter so these are stupid examples for real.

Sorry, but most people nowadays use Facebook and Twitter. BB forums are a thing from the early Internet, and although they're still useful, truth is few people actually use them compared to the whole.

Why would it be pointless on Facebook but required on a BB forum?

Removing your signature doesn't impact your freedom. The only freedom you have here that I can think of is freedom of speech.

I totally agree with both of you. Low quality posters will always be around, even with no signature ads allowed. The end results will be to ONLY lose those tiny tips signature ads give us.

Just my 2 satoshi.

Facebook and Twitter is not a forum, wrong comparison. Social media account  is very different from a forum account.

I don't know. Facebook Groups seem pretty comparable to forums to me.

facebook is nothing like a forum, there is no way to monitor everyone in facebook and its all facebooks rules and everything you write is owned by facebook, and they can close you down, forums are from the BBS days Facebook is from a phone book

Of course Facebook has its own rules you have to play by. But that's not the point. I'm talking about the concept of people discussing their ideas, which can happen both in Facebook Groups and in forums.

Facebook is from a phone book sounds like the beginning of a great sonnet, I think.  But anyway theymos owns this forum and whatnot, he can delete whatever and as far as I know is god around here like facebook is on facebook.

There is not the same level of commerce taking place on Facebook that takes places on the forums. Additionally it is much more difficult to recover your money when you are scammed via bitcoin then when you are scammed using a credit card on Facebook (you would need to take legal action against a likely anon person).

The use of signatures reduces scams by giving value to accounts because people can earn BTC via signature deals. If signatures were not allowed then the only people buying accounts would likely be scammers and this would make it much more difficult to conduct business at best, and more likely would result in more people being successful at pulling off scams.

Additionally there are much more spammy ways that people use both Facebook and twitter then spamming their signature ad. For example people can update their status with no limits, can repost various advertisements, among other things (Facebook). People can tweet and retweet advertisements and use hashtags in spammy ways (twitter).
