Why is everyone informed when a member posts from a mobile device?

    When someone makes a post on MacRumors from a mobile device it always seems to say something like this above it:

    Wirelessly posted (Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 5_0 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/534.46 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.1 Mobile/9A334 Safari/7534.48.3)

    Anyone have any idea why? Are they special? :p

    Yeah over @ VWvortex...we always harass people for that. It is usually a Tapatalk sig of some sort. Really annoys me for some reason.

    Why does it annoy you?

    It's something the mobile forum software adds in.

    I'm not sure why, maybe the creators wanted to make those posts special.

    Tapatalk does that by default unless you turn it off in settings.
