I can get rid of the signature or use some xyz webmail service. But I am
not really ready to face my boss when he discovers this. As a sys admin
it is my duty to block ALL known webmail sites. Further why should I
risk my job?
I agree that my huge signature at the bottom of every mail is going to
waste bandwidth, but that's the only easiest way to participate in a
mailing list like ILUGC for me. I dont want to go to a browsing center
at 11PM daily to check my ILUGC mails. I can only feel sorry if the sigs
are disturbing :-(
By the above , what you say is :
All you guys go to hell;
I can post only from the cosy comforts to whatever mailing lists I want;
Why dont you suggest me a way out? Now that I know a bit more about
disclaimers, I can _recommend_ my company not to have one in the future. I
will do that, but even then the decision is not going to be mine.
And the sig below has been with the company longer than myself.
COurtesy and adhering to mailing lists guidelines be damned!
Is there any courtesy or mailing list guidelines that say that long
disclaimers or sigs are to be avoided in a mailing list? If you can convince
me on this, I can most probably convince my boss to drop these things at
least when participating on mailing lists. I _can_ understand that how
others would feel when they have to download all these long sigs and
disclaimers. But how do I convince my boss?
Give me __solid__ evidence/help as to why long sigs and disclaimers are to be
avoided in outgoing mails. And let the input be good enough for me to
recommend a policy change in the company. The links sent by Suraj and SRS
have already been forwarded to my boss.
