u2u someone to tell them that I thought a post or thread they wrote was particularly interesting, or that I love their avatar, etc) but it is a good
way to give that person recognition.
I think honestly that adding a layer of ratings for signatures would be problematic. For one, I can imagine (though I don't know) that it would add a
fair bit of server strain and programming headaches. Also, people use their signatures in many different ways that I think are not necessarily
comparable -- to link to favorite threads, showcase favorite quotes, display graphics, even link to outside sites (I think you're supposed to get
permission for that one though).
