    What is the deal with these annoying "signatures" displaying at the beginning of so many posts?

    Spamvertisments from morons who develop those programs and yes they are damn annoying and should be IMHO cause for instant banning of the fool posting..

    It's part of the MacRumors mobile software the admins run.

    It is a part of the mobile site.

    Anybody posting on a mobile site will have that "signature" (Rather a header, no?) on the top of their post describing their browsers, etc.

    I think it would even work on a desktop if you post from the mobile site.

    Instant banning for the person posting?

    So it is from the official MacRumors mobile site? It doesn't seem very Mac like (streamlined). What benefit is there in telling everyone else your specs in every post you make?

    Yes, 'header' seems more appropriate.
