I've heard of grammar Nazi's lurking on lists, but now we have signature Nazi's too?  Haven't you all got something 
else better to do like finding an exploit or something rather than bicker over something that amounts to little more 
than a tag line?  Cripes, this has to be the stupidest argument/waste of time that I've seen in a while.

And he still could have, and should have edited it.


I don't disagree.  It would appear he definitely had the choice since
it doesn't seem to have passed through a corporate mailserver that
enforces it outside his control.


And all of that aside, who cares?  We see signatures like that all
the time on mailing lists.  It's pretty obvious they're useless in
this context.

Useless in any context. Sigs. like that are very unprofessional.
Even if
I know they are nonsense, such disclaimers come across as mildly
bullying.

Useless, yes.  Unprofessional, also yes.  But no more so than the
long winded reply that followed it.  I'd actually argue that annoying
bit of easily ignored text was less intrusive than the reply from
Nick Fitzgerald.  I'm not sure about everyone else here, but those
legalese tags at the end of emails on lists register about as much as
the ads on webpages.  They don't.
