Personally, I can't see the point of a signature.
You can see who posted via the From column.
After a sig is seen once it just becomes tiresome to me.

Where else can you put witty little one-liners, or, if your a
Linux user, that's where yo write your Windows FUD.

I see your point, but I like a sig. The authorship of a message is
important enough that I prefer to see it close to the text. And after a
while I get to know the sigs of regular contributors and I can recognise
them using only peripheral vision.

I guess a lot depends on the window layout, which obviously varies
greatly. I don't have a "From column", though there is a "From" line
near the top of the message window.

I like to bore people with (half)witticisms.

That's a pretty hairy thing to say, IME.
That provoked a literal LOL moment for me, thanks! Now my coworkers are
wondering what in the world I'm up to...

Lucky me - I am retired and I'm often alone during the day, so I can LOL
without anyone knowing :)

Aside from the occasional coffee splatters, that is...
