You make a good jesting point, John.
(the following is not directed at you)
Some of the Moderators get responses from members not far off what you just said (what you said in jest), and are getting tired of the negative responses. This goes on quite often via PM.
The Moderators have a responsibility to uphold the policies of the Forum, and don't deserve to have * h i t slung at them for trying to do their job. If you're asked to shrink your sig within the new guidelines, do it.
If you have issues with the new policy when it'* announced, PM an Admin.
We're all adults here, so for the betterment of the Forum and the Health of the Moderators, I'd personally like to see the pending transistion go very smoothly.
