Well the old saying fits here I think. Opinions are like ________ , everyone has one".
I personally don't care about the +1. I don't even acknowledge it really. I also don't care about the long signature line. Heck, I list my tools on it because I am proud that I CAN afford them AND use them. I know there are a bunch of people on this forum that do collect tools and rarely use them... What's wrong with that?!?! I don't think there is anything wrong with it. Heck, there are a lot worse things to collect like tiny porcelain clowns. [shiver]
Even if you did collect tiny porcelain clowns, there is probably a forum out there for it (maybe I will start TPCOG.com) and people go there to learn all they can about them, be it professional or just hobbyist.
I joined this forum to learn and share, and to be part of an area that will better my woodworking skills, better my tool "collection" and meet other folks with similar interests.
Usually I keep my mouth shut but this is getting ridiculous... There is no way to enforce a ban on +1. If a signature line that is 30 rows deep annoys you, then scroll faster. If you don't like that a person has more tools than you and "flaunts" it in their signature line, get over it because it is human nature to be proud of their possessions.
No offense to the OP about the request, but it is impossible to ban it. If Shane did make it possible, people will come up with something else and that will annoy some percentage of members here.
By the way, I use my phone a LOT for this forum and use Tapatalk and by default, it doesn't show the signature lines.
