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...
