I don't like signatures in general because I think it's an unsolicited
statement of one's opinion, but whenever I meet one I don't agree with,
I don't feel suddenly unwelcome.
However I fully support Ben's line of defense, people are worthy of
respect, ideas not necessarily.
Whenever I'm saying anything stupid about python, I expect this list to
react immediately, showing me how wrong I am. And usually this list
delivers :) and I never felt disrespected...
