No, there is often useful (or at least interesting) information in a
message signature block; the problem is with *some* of them, not all of

And the problem is that one message presents obnoxious crap to every
reader; suggesting that the recipient is the one responsible for
avoiding obnoxious behaviour in a public forum is a mistake of ethics.

The correct solution to obnoxious crap boilerplate in messages is for
the sender to take action to stop generating obnoxious crap boilerplate
in messages. And our job is to convince them to implement that solution.
