    I think it would be a good idea to exclude users signature info from search or at least have the option to do so.

    Signatures often contain a list of the user's equipment and...if you're doing a search for a specific piece of equipment that happens to be in one or more user signatures...your results will include every post that user has made regardless of its pertinence.

    Edit: It does. My mistake.

    Signatures should not be included in search results and I'm not seeing them there. For example, if I search on your last name, I don't get every post of yours even though it's in your signature.

    Can you share a specific example where you're seeing the issue?

    I searched "Baltimore" and came up empty.

    My mistake! I had me/us confused with me/them at a different forum.
