Why are these allowed in Signatures? Or if not allowed, why are Signatures with them not dealt with?

Is worrying about someone’s religious quote in their signature really the best thing you have to get worked up about?

Probably is getting a bit boring these days in Lower Uncton.

As you may have noticed, moderators will issue 7 day bans on any political or religion posts. Everybody knows the rules, please respect them. If you don't respect the rules you will be put in time-out.

There are plenty of places to talk (argue) about current events, politics, and religion. In fact we host an unmoderated forum for just that at www.topnewstalk.com.

Thank you!

If after the first ban for political posts has ended, the next political post will result in a 30 day ban. After that ban, the third ban will be a permanent ban.

Thank you for posting this Muhammad. I totally agree we should keep politics off this forum.

I am adding topnewstalk to my signature right now!

I've seen several political statements in the past week, one of which was a Fox News video posted; yes, they disappeared, yet the poster is still active. Obviously only "some" are banned.
