    Good - a rational policy and one that, hopefully, will be consistent across the board. A Christmas present for all.

    You'll always be non-compliant in my book (Not that that actually means much, but just thought I'd let you know.. )

    I turned off the sig line feature a year ago. I like the clean look.

    Let me know if I'm missing something.

    Hey Rich,

    You're not missing anything, but those of us reading your posts are missing learning more about the poster because of your lack of a sig line.

    one click on your public profile is all it takes.

    to me, sig lines full of smilies and tarted up colors make our forum look like a teenager's myspace page. This makes it harder to appreciate the actual content of one's post, and degrades our brand voice.

    sorta like conchos on a K12s.

    Well, many here have not bothered to fill out their public profile.(not directed at Rich or Ian who have).

    Ok, Ok, so my sig line looks like an upright bathtub with a Madonna. So...

    I have been chastized, but I like it and am not changing it.

    Unlike Sue who changed her username!

    And I have added more than the usual number of smilies just because they look like whirligigs.

    tb

    So how are your eyes now, Sue??

    Yer KILLING me!



    Hey ... I bought some Seghesio [Sonoma] 2007 Zinfandel last week, rated #10 of the top 100 wines of the World in 2008, by the Wine Spectator. Thought of you, Tom, as I poured my second glass .

    If you can find it, I strongly recommend it. $20 a bottle.

    Sorry ... I almost hijacked this thread.

    Well, if you're gonna hijack, you're doin' it right. Although my wife and I are Red only folks. Give me a steak and a nice shiraz anyday...

    And now, back to your regularly scheduled progarm...

    Hey Sue & Oldhway,

    I'm more of a red wine person myself. Just had a glass of Charles Shaw Merlot. You can buy it at Trader Joe's and there is one in Madison. It sells for $2.99 a bottle and we buy it by the case. It's not in the top 100, but the price is right.
