    Writing your name at the end of a post...


    I dont quite get it. What is with that after each and every post?

    I can see who wrote a post by looking at the left side of my firefox window. I can see if you really like your name or something but is it really needed or is this just the new trendy thing to do.

    Wow, that was short - I'd hardly call that a rant. Maybe someone should start a thread ranting about people who don't know how to rant. :p :cool:

    Best regards,

    I don't see a problem of using it. I never used it though.

    I could start a rant about people who don't proof read before posting, but out of courtesy, I won't. :p

    I'll tell you what's worse, grown up people using smilies. Honestly, sometimes it's like an AOL teenage chatroom in here.

    :) is bad enough.

    :D This at the end of every sentence should be a prisonable offence - tedious cheeseballs.

    The worst is :rolleyes: Any moron caught doing this should be found and shot.

    It's a bit harsh to pick on the morons that use it. What's your opinion of moderators that use it?

    I LOVE my name! No, it's just that for me, short hand is very frustrating. First miss a letter or two... or three, then the name - what is communication coming to?

    Regards, David

    I'll agree with the :rolleyes: smiley. See my previous thoughts about it here. If I remember correctly, my idea was soundly rejected. Ah well... :)

    I always find it annoying when people feel the need to post entire threads on crap like this. :rolleyes:
