It seems at the moment that when you reply to a forum post by quoting (using the "quote" button), the quoted text also includes the previous post's and poster's signature.

I often manually remove this as it seems to make quoted text messy and is, IMHO, unnecessary.

I personally think that it would be better if signatures are automatically stripped in the quoted text when you reply. I think that most forum packages like phpBB do this by default - I'm not sure though and would have to double check.

Thank you for the suggestion. I will add this to the list for improvements to the forums.
