    This is a place where all of us can discuss about signatures. You can tell your opinion of sigs of other members, or tell about your signature.

    In your face, Abaddon! :p

    Yes, I'm shocked. 2 losses in a row is hard for Abaddon.

    It looks curiously disjoint. Also, the term "intellectual graffiti" comes to mind, but I'm unsure why.

    Copying my proposed sig from the last thread:

    Free will won't. You're a complex program, nothing more. And for all we hear "I'm a freethinker", the right authority can still override two of three and order them to kill.
    Expect more subtle viruses in the future.


    I struggled with the form of the last line. Most of the versions had me sounding like a fearmonger. Ironically, those who dismiss manipulative memetics are probably the most manipulable.

    I've had the same two quotes for a while (and the Hesiod one's been there longer). I think it's time for an update...

    Am I wrong, or is "manipulative memetics" just a fancy way of saying propaganda?


    For all the talk of "memes" on hear these days, one'd think one'd see some attempts to turn it into more than a metaphor. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places, but this far I've seen little to suggest that "memetics" is more than, well, what the kids would call a meme these days; something like "O RLY?".

    My signature is the only thing I change regularly and it tends to reflect the threads of the day or month if I'm lazy.

    I keep the bulk of it, but I like to change the top quote from time to time. Feeling nostalgic, so I went back to what my sig originally said :)
