Hi Bryan,

actually printing out an automaticly generated signature wouldn't change anything, because users' real name values are already used in From header of the generated email. Hence if user X does call himself Mister X, then the email heaer looks like this:
From: Mister X <>

Even if there will be now a forced signature the signature can still not give more information that user has given. The signature could look like this:
Forum user: Mister X (X) <>

So the one thing I could add is mister X's used email adress and nothing else, because there is just no more information available.
