What Is Your Email Signature?
With the discussion going on in this thread about whether or not the "Sent From My iPad" signature looks unprofessional, I've been wondering: What else do people put in their signatures?
This thread isn't about the iPad question, but email signatures in general. Do you use them? Why or why not? What do you put in yours: Contact info, inspirational quotes, ASCII art? Something else?
And on the flip side: if you don't care for email signatures, what in particular do you dislike seeing in an email?

For the most part, my emails will almost always have the signature, Just Me, D. There are times, however, where I may insert a Bible verse or quote of wisdom. It depends on the situation. If it's a business email, I will oftentimes use a template that I've already created containing my name & contact information. Finally, there are times when I'm posting in forums and I may include "via Tapatalk" or something like that, but not all the time.

Never use signatures, and our supervising officers hate it, lol. They have the time to sit down and make a nice and pretty signature for their correspondences, i just send short and sweet stuff...then when i go in they all complain "What if we don't know who this email is coming from because there is no officer information at the bottom?", and while it does nothing for my future prospects of getting a promotion, i always say "Just take a look up at the top and you'll see who sent it...me..." Thankfully they love me too much to stay mad for more than a few seconds, lol.

I always use an email signature block. The content is dependent upon which email account (I use many), and to whom I am sending the email. My stock signature is:
L1: Apple Logo and First/Last name
L2: Email address. I realize that this is redundant but it's a throwback to my work email where it's required.
L3: Contact information, usually a Phone Number and/or Street Address. This line often gets deleted before the email is sent, depending on who/why/need to know
L4: Twitter handle. Again, can be deleted before hitting "send", as the situation warrants.
