    Just curious, is it against the rules to show in your signature which candidate you would most or least want to see elected President next year? I know political avatars seem to be allowed.

    You can check for yourself. There is a Rules link at the top of this window, under the MacRumors name.

    The word "signature" can be found 12 times in the rules, spread out. So it's not the easiest thing to get a feeling for. This is one of the most important bits:

    Basically, in addition to the formatting requirements, just make sure you don't word your political statement in a way that seems trollish/designed to rile people up, and you'll be fine. :)

    So if I want to have a political signature, I can say "X Rocks" or "X for President" or "Vote X in 2012," but I can't say "Y Sucks," "Y Is A Liar," etc.
