A lot of people seem to be labouring under the misapprehension that this forum belongs to us. Well, it doesn't! This forum belongs to Transworld publishing.
The main purpose of this forum is, purely and simply, to sell as many Transworld books as possible.
Whether we like it or not, we are all just insignificant bit players, mere marketing tools, who contribute indirectly (and directly) to the profits of the publisher.
If people with mobile phones can't access the forum, potential sales will be lost. Transworld publishing has every right to ensure maximum sales of its products, so the complete ban on signature images, although at first glance seeming unduly harsh, is in reality, the only sensible economic course of action to take.
Vote Capitalism. Vote Romney. Kill the poor.
