Hmmm could it be you don't know what a signature is? Okay, let's proceed
on that very unlikely assumption instead of the alternative that you are
being annoying on purpose.

You identify yourself with the characters "sherm--". You use the
identifying string to close (to conclude a correspondence) your post
after the content. It is not content, but just an identifier that
indicates that the above remarks were written by you. That *is* a
signature. Yes you are not placing your signature within a signature
block, that is the problem, but it still is a signature! Now if you
would please stop being obstinate and simply place 4 characters (hyphen,
hyphen, space, carriage return) before your identification string
(whatever you wish to call it) it would then conform to protocol. Yes it
is a small thing, but it is also a courteous and right thing to do. Then
folks don't have to constantly snip out your "identification string"
from their replies. Is that so hard? In fact if you have a decent
newsreader you can configure it to insert it automatically and save you
keystrokes if you are so lazy.

Take care,
