I just wanted to go on record as being against the new sig pics. I paid for Premium in order to raise the signal-to-noise ratio on this site, and now the boards are a gallery of bad animated gifs and huge jpgs that I have absolutely no interest in seeing. Forum pages take an order of magnitude longer to load as well.
I know I'm probably alone on this, but I wanted to put it out there. Resist the urge to flame me into Bolivian.
Admins: Perhaps provide a way to opt out of loading sig pics?
EDIT: Perfect example.
EDIT 2: Ok, I just realized there are already options in the User CP, but it looks like it's all-or-nothing on displaying sigs. I'd rather be able to read sigs without seeing the pics, but such is life.
