It's weird actually. I like context to my messages, because I am one
of those weird people who reads lists chronologically rather than
threaded - so giving context and history to what you are saying by
quoting a little too much doesn't bother me as much as it bothers some
people. However I find overly long signatures that attempt to be
"interesting" quite distracting.

I do however accept that people can't always control their signatures
- my work one appends my job title, team, division. phone number,
corporate website and a blank line for the fax number I don't have,
followed by the standard boilerplate about forgetting you ever saw the
message if you receive it in error on all messages sent to external
recipients. This is the main reason I don't use it for lists (and
actually don't email people outside the company from it).
