After 190 comments to my question about leaving comment signatures, I can say with much confidence that most of you do not like it when commentators leave their signature in a comment. The overall feeling is you consider it as spam because the commentator’s name is already linked to their site.
It was a landslide victory for the Nay side. Only five commentators voted to flavor of allowing comment signatures. About another five didn’t care either way and rest were against signatures in the comments.
This does not mean I will be banning comment signatures on this blog. However, I will be asking commentators to refrain from using a comment signature when leaving a comment. Your name is already linked to your web site. There is no need to repeat it in the comments. If you wish link to another site that is relevant to the discussion then feel free to do so as we have no problem with that.
