Well, shit. Now I'll have to make it a religious view.
I don't have an anger problem, I have an idiot problem

Their original post is there for the world to see anyway,so I believe it's all good.

The basic idea is that nobody is put on the spot, in a negative or belittling way. With standard trolling that might only happen now and again. With a signature, a user could find themselves faced with something they may have said but since retracted, with every post a hypothetical you makes.
At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist.  This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or with despair.  Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, 'Wait a second.  That means there's a situation vacant.'

The person get's a warning about this?  If so then that's me in the clear.


Are you ready for the fire? We are firemen. WE ARE FIREMEN! The heat doesn’t bother us. We live in the heat. We train in the heat. It tells us that we’re ready, we’re at home, we’re where we’re supposed to be. Flames don’t intimidate us. What do we do? We control the flame. We control them. We move the flames where we want to. And then we extinguish them.

Impersonation is treason.

Should I report a person with a signature that breaks this rule before or after the 1 week is over? And that's a serious question.

Nah life kind of sucks for me right now tbh. I'm happy today though.

To those wondering if their's is okay: I think the idea is just don't quote someone in your sig. It's pretty pathetic behavior anyway - "Look what this person said, everyone. What they said is so ridiculous that I'm not even gonna' provide a counter-argument. The ridiculousness of their statement is just implied because why else would I have it in my sig?" It's just a way to virtue signal.

Let's discuss ideas; not people.

It's really quite simple. Are you quoting someone to make them look stupid, or bad in some other way? Then don't.

Otherwise, as in mine own sig, which I chose to highlight a particularly pithy statement, it's fine.

We're here for the grey areas.

CoMD, I hear you.

What if only we find it rude or stupid or weird or funny, but the posters see nothing wrong with what they posted and are maybe proud of their statements? Who are we to judge?

If anyone wants me to remove mine, I will... No probs at all. I don't do drama.

I'm still wondering if I'll get a warning so I'll know if I should change what my sig is or not.

I'm fine with keeping it as it is, mine aren't there to make people look stupid.  They're viewpoints that I don't agree with but as far as I know nobody has changed their mind about what they said.

RE: Trolling rule update
Given that you don't agree with the viewpoints in your sig, the question arises as to why you would quote them if not to paint those users in a less than positive light. Unless a case can be made otherwise, my advice would be to remove them if you feel they verge on trolling. Other Staff might not agree, but that's my take on it.
