Long sigs

I got a kick out of Mike McBride's post over at Life of a one-man IT department on long sig lines.
As any law-firm IT person can tell you, 18 lines is not an exaggeration. The "standard" sig file for our firm has a 3 line paragraph tax advice disclaimer, a blank line, 8 lines of contact information, (name, title, company, address, phone number, fax number, email address, etc.)another blank line and then concludes with a 6 line "Confidentiality Notice".

Yes, that's 17 lines of text with two paragraph breaks, for a total of 19 lines. And yes, the first time I saw it on an email, the entire contents of which was the word "Thanks", it blew my mind.

For the record mine is only 15 lines, including the "Confidentiality Notice".
