Yet apparently you are ignorant of using an *.test newsgroup for such
test posts.
I think this was a "demonstration of effect", rather than a test.

It was intended to show what a post from Ed would look like, if
it used a sig separator. And what it would look like without one.
Since the sig in this case, is a single line, and two characters,
it's not a big deal.

For people with signatures the size of New Jersey, then yes,
using a sig separator would be preferred by other respondents.
As then, there's a mess to clean up, and automating the cleanup
of an unnecessarily long signature is appreciated.

Yes, I rather resent his pages and pages of barely-comprehensible stuff
- but at least it is, as you point out, below a proper separator, so
gets cut automatically from any followup. (Not that I often follow him
up.)

like, unless it is specifically prohibited by law. We are not as rule-bound
and codified as other legal systems. - Helena Kennedy QC (Radio Times 14-20

Overlong "signatures" are rude and annoying, even with a delimiter. They
still have to be endured the first time. People should try to stay close
to the four line rule, regardless.
