I’ve seen a lot of people complain about Entourage, and that it puts a signature below the quoted reply text instead of above it. But I ask: if you are replying to an email, does the person really need to see your signature? By definition, don’t they already know who you are and what you do?

Now, I can imagine circumstances where that signature is necessary, but I’m guessing 90% of the emails out there don’t need a signature at all, even the professional one that lists name and contact information. I’d like to start a campaign to encourage people to use signatures only when necessary.

For ultimate proof that automatic signatures are not a good idea, however, see Dean Dad.
