I tried putting a small image in my signature, like this:

but it looks like this:

Feature or bug?

We don't allow images in signatures. They tend to detract from the mission of the board. Additionally, your image host attempted to set a cookie on my computer. We don't need that either...

"attempted" :)

I flat out reject all cookies from unknown sites these days. If some website I care about doesn't work, I turn them on ("ask for each cookie") and tell firefox to allow cookies for that site when I get the popup, then turn them off again. The exception that gets added will override firefox's global cookies on/off setting. So there's no need for a 1000-site-long cookie block list.

Cookies aren't scary.

They don't scare me. They annoy me.
