Interesting. I hadn't analyzed signatures by owner. I like signatures
because they tell me something about the people using them and make it easier
to identify further posts from them. Just as, in the real world, I can
identify a face or a voice faster than I can a name on a nametag.

I guess it works. I've received several favorable comments on my signature,
all (as I recall) from women.
