    Not a big fan of it either... Always comes across as gloating to me for some reason.

    I made this post using Forum Runner and I disabled the dorky sigline when I set up the app so you all wouldn't have to look at it. I'm sure the other apps have the same capability.

    I've seen it plenty of times especially on other forums.

    It really doesn't bother me. Its actually interesting to see the continuing increase in amount of posts done through phones.

    On forums I don't like it very much, because it doesn't add anything.

    I use it when mailing from my iPhone. It's a way of telling someone it's not handy to type a lengthy response and telling someone I'm not on my computer at the moment.

    Surely there are bigger issues? It's not something I find particularly bothersome.

    slightly annoying.. like i need to start reading the beginning of that line before realising it has nothing to do with the reply itself. so yes. annoyed. wasting my time also.

    hey DM51,

    what's the name for those signal lights?? I've been trying to think of it for days now... there's a thread in the Laser sub-forum about optical communications and those code flashing naval lights were in the back of my head.

    thanks,
    Steve K.

    Seems to be the best I cane come up with Signal lamp. I would have thought semaphore but that doesn't seem to be correct.

    neat little toy... carbon arc lamps are one thing that leds haven't replaced just yet.. as far as I know. I wonder if you could drop a few Bridgelux led arrays in there and get a light that you could modulate with data. Sure would beat the data rate of 14 words per minute (according to the wiki page) that you get with hand operated morse code.

    apparently the Bridgelux would be overkill, eh?? That doesn't mean it wouldn't be fun, though....

    I do recall that original thread, and had forgotten all about it. A similar thread emerged on the laser subforum, but the discussion regarding the suitability of coherent vs non-coherent light never came up. A very interesting subject, and I need to find time to play around in the lab with these sorts of projects.

    thanks,
    Steve K.

    It's obvious that we all have different thresholds for irritation. I don't mind it at all and think that it gives interesting demographic info to all users.
    I'm sure the site owners have the ability to see where the posts and traffic comes from, Tapatalk usage, mobile safari, etc. , but I get a kick out of seeing how many folks check, post, and even buy from their mobiles.
    I check CPF and CPFM frequently at work on my iPad, but it doesn't leave a mobile sig when I post like Tapatalk does. Atomic Web Browser or Safari are fine (for me) on iPad or iPhone so I don't use Tapatalk.

    If the sigs bother a person I think a method could be developed whereby any 2-4 word groups at the end of a post could be skipped over after a simple IF/THEN test:
    When passing your eyes from the end of the body of the post pass your eyes over the beginning of the small group of words at the end, IF the first word = Sent, THEN move to the next post. ELSE read word group.
