I've been in a lot of lockerrooms, but I've never seen one of those with a fingernail on the front!
When we had a political forum I used to sign my threads "PFnV"
Man, you should have seen people's heads explode. Reasons to hate me went, from most frequent to least,
1) Length of posts
2) Big words
3) that signoff
4) Actual content
And frankly, it was an unwritten rule that any response to content would be predominantly attacks on the purported character or characteristics of one's bete noire.
Kinda miss the place... :/
I think PJ asked before and my reply still holds: An old carryover from the usenet Pats group 20 years ago. When I came over here, I kept the signoff. It's basically shtick at this point. Weren't you on that usenet group?I actually do think it's cool that Chris does that signoff (to the extent it amuses me, I am reminded of those Andrew Luck Civil War letters).
I really would like to know why he does it. Since it's not required, I imagine there's some interesting motivation involved. Maybe he just misses snail mail and its lost graces? A mini tribute?
