Many people like adding links to their internet content in their signature. It seems this forum considers that spammy. It's not really spam because it's not the main content people are posting. When I create content in a forum, I do it for exposure. I love writing stories and commenting on other people's posts and ideas. This does add to the community. This makes people want to learn more about me, and I want my signature to have quip remarks that hold links to stuff I do. If I can't add these in my profile I'm less likely to build content on this site.
