Cut the quotes, please

Why do some people find it necessary to put some irrelevant quote after their signature in forum and mailing list postings? When you see posts from these people several times a day it becomes incredibly irritating.

One person whose posts I seem to encounter frequently has two quotes after his signature: "Whoever said nothing is impossible never tried slamming a revolving door!" and "A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have."

I can't say I ever found the first one very funny but it has got very old after the 100th viewing. And I didn't join a ham radio mailing list to learn about people's political opinions, whether or not I agree with them. So please, just stop doing it.
