in thread Distribution of Levels and Writeups

90% of the time, my nodes are at least 20-40 lines long. In those cases, does my 6 line signature really cause issues?

I personally like the 4 lines that BrowserUk used as a kind response to somthing stupid I said. I probably will remove the last line, because it doesn't add anything. *shrugs* I don't know. This is a vi vs. emacs kind of debate. You're not the first to comment on this, and you won't be the last.

An interesting note - PM is the only place I actually have a signature. I don't even use one at work.

Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.

    90% of the time your nodes are 20-40 lines long? Are you sure? I checked your last 10 nodes (as of this writing), and here are the line counts:
    395203:  7
    395121:  2
    395117:  3
    395114:  4
    395101:  1
    395093:  3
    395092: 11
    395090:  2
    395089: 14
    395010:  1
    
    This is using a window width where your signature itself uses 6 lines (excluding the disclaimer you sometimes use below the sig). I didn't count blank lines, but I did count lines of code that had just one character on a line. This, admittingly small, sample uses an average line count of 4.8. Which is less than your sig. In fact, only 3 out of 10 postings have more lines than your sig.
