Is it really useful or ideal to allow profanity in signatures?
I'd assume the younger generations use this forum.
Hardly good Forum etiquette which some are quick to remind others of.

Nope. Is there one in particular that concerns you? If so, please specify and I'll take a look.

I've got a feeling it might be mine...

We had a run in on the other forum (before she got banned) and I think she's just pot stirring (call me cynical! ;))

I'm familiar with your signature. I'm also fine with it staying as is. Profanity is such a subjective term, too. For some, my calling myself an atheist is profane, as is calling someone a twat waffle. Always willing to listen and explore feedback from members, though.
