    Click on the top right on Settings

    Then on the left, click on General Settings in My Settings.

    In Thread Display Option
    you have a checkbox called : Show Signatures

    Uncheck it, save and Voila. You have gotten rid of all the Signatures.
    I already have the most egregious abusers of sig length on ignore.

    That said, I don't think other people should have to turn off all sigs just because one or two attention seekers abuse it. Those lengthy sigs are just another version of spam and Turbine should treat them as such.

Overall, I'd much rather that folks self-regulate their overly-long signatures, rather than impose stricter signature limits, but ultimately if there are enough folks who feel strongly about it, we may well need to set stricter limits to prevent "walls of quotes" in particular. This would have the unfortunate byproduct of also limiting how many lines of text can be entered.
    Why don't Text signatures get the same vertical restriction as Picture ones?

    A person can be allowed to have text and a graphic in their signature with a maximum sig height of 300 pixels, neither the text or the graphic can be over 150pixels high individually.

    Most of the quote signatures here are of no value beyond trolling, people with 2+ quotes in their sig have a negative impact on my foruming experience.

    Personally I feel that a signature taking up 300pixels is too long, but it's a better compromise than the current situation.

    Reporting the bug via the web (for instance, from the link in my signature) should work, and make sure it gets addressed even if no one ever looks at this forum thread again.

    Here is a great example of why being able to squelch individual signatures, or just the graphic component of signatures would be much better than our current all or nothing solution.

    Cordovan can turn off signatures individually. Report the Sig abusers.

    You could also install adblock plus. It has the ability to block individual images such as those in signatures.

    Hell such as the one in my signature, which I don't see because they are turned off for me.... heh my signature is a protest signature!

    the old forums had limits that worked well enough to keep things manageable. I still wait for the day when troll and chai get into a one-liner argument. Wading through the signatures to see what the hell they would be talking about is likely an achievement somewhere.

    While those long signatures are totally stupid and useless, they also serve a good purpose... They can clearly help to spot attention seekers with which you know you can keep a useless conversations for days when you're bored.

    But have to agree I've heard from other it is a nuisance for real when they browse the forum... This can easily be dealt with though.

    Unless it is breaking a rule of some kind, +1 to the first person who makes the OP their signature.

    I know somebody mentioned it already for individual images but you can hide ALL signatures too using Adblock plus. (Right click --> AdBlock --> Block an Ad on this page --> Then move the slider to cover signatures.)

There is also no need to counter a poster's every point by putting your arguments directly in the quoted body of their post. (In obnoxiously contrasting text especially) Lists are great things. They go like this:
    1. but blah blah
    2. if blah blah
    3. therefore blah blah

    Notice how the OP didn't actually put a textwall of BS quotes in and just abbreviated to make a statement. He doesn't want his or anybody's eye holes light raped.
    I do both actually. Especially if I'm directly responding to someone else, I'll quote them. Maybe not the entire post, but I'll quote them. And if responding to different parts in sequence, I'll have multiple quotes in the post.

    Is it really that complicated?
    There's like two people that come to my mind that have exceedingly long sigs.
    I don't want to turn sigs off in general because I often use some links that people have in there.
    I also don't want to ignore those two people.

    So like cordovan said if those persons could regulate it themselves, that'd be great.

    Well is obvious that it seems very complicated, at least for those people, I don't find it that hard like almost everyone around

    I also don't want to turn sigs off or squelch but since some seem unable to control their will to bother others ...
    Under and behind and inside everything this man took for granted, something horrible had been growing.

    Are you saying no one reported T**_***** and C*** yet? Or Cordovan found them to not be sig abusers?

    Either way it seems what you suggest is not a viable solution.

    Also something should be done about people who don't put their sig in their sig space, you know, like this.

    Yea, so I'm thinking this is silly, just logon, turn off signatures, and be done with it. I do it for hundreds of forums that I read, should be the same. One click and done - all fixed.

    Then I read the forums the next day, and sigs are back. What? OK, no big deal, logon, one click and done.

    Next day, all sigs are back. OH YEA, WE CAN'T STAY LOGGED IN MORE THAN 10 MINUTES (hyperbole here).

    So I'm now counting this as a minor fail for the DEV's and am asking that you do something - or let us stay logged in! Someone would have to bypass my security system, break into my house, fight with a 90 lbs black lab (well, until you gave him a treat, then he's your best friend :-) and log onto my computer to get my account info.

    How about a defaulted "Logging into a public computer" vs a 30 day cookie.
