    As far as I know that's always been his signature. Still, I'll get the lard, rubber hoses and bright lights in case we need to interrogate him

    In other words, I wouldn't worry about it. But credit to you for spotting and querying it

    FYI though, in future it may be best to PM such concerns to an administrator - while the vast majority of users on here are able to conduct themselves in an appropriate manner we do occasionally get... less restrained users, who will take anything as an excuse to start spamming. Administrators (maybe also moderators) can see the IP address that each post originates from, and together with this they can observe the style of someone's posts to see if there is a change in style and IP which might suggest an account hijack.

      Hi Andysullman,

      It must have been those Believers.... . Fortunatuly for me It hasn't been hijacked. Sorry for using such a colorful word.
      Even if that was the case though they would not just hijack an account and change a signature. It would be a waste of their time and effort. At the list they would just attempt to flod the forum with spam.
      Thanks for spotting it though but as GI said if in doubt just PM one of the MODS and they will take any appropriate action.

      @Gforceindustries
      You might get a job offer from the FBI if you come up with comments like that .

      @Mods
      P.S. I will edit if it's causing any concerns

              Well fortunately we have some really good admins who keep good maintenance on the forums.
              So basically it's a false alarm and nothing to worry about

                    I was on the same boat as you and in the end decided to do it myself. Can't get any hijackers nowdays

                        Thanks Wired but... it's not that I didn't know how to make a signature, it's that i don't have the intelligence to put something interesting and my mother always said that if I don't have anything intelligent or interesting to say then I should say nothing.

                        But as itís fashionable I'll keep my eyes peeled and plagiarise one or two others and make one that way
