    You can't. Netiquette is to use a four line sig, so if you use a five

    Where in "Personality" is that located?
    I can't find any place to enter an email address.

    I don't mind suggestions from software about netiquette,
    but i do mind it enforcing its notion of netiquette on me.
    4 is OK... 5 is a sin?

    The answer is somewhat dependent on what you have done. So I think it
    would be better if you read the section of the user guide part 6,
    Messages and Personalities than for me to answer that. What I have done
    is set up a default personality as described. You may have set up
    another personality or perhaps you have not set up any personalities.
     

    Well, they are not supposed to be more than 4. The software does let
    you use 5, it just warns you, if it were enforcing 4, it would not let
    you post 5. I think this approach comes from something called the Good
    Net Keeping Seal of approval. http://www.newsreaders.com/gnksa/ .

    5 lines isn't a compliant .sig file. The software is notifying the
    user that they aren't following the conventions.

    i know i'm not following the conventions.
    i don't need to be reminded more than once.

    they're conventions, not Commandments.

    Tough. Use something else.

    You know, something more common.

    Something more, well, average.

    Well, I finally found it. The 6th button at the top of the window
    (the one with what appears to be a light switch icon next to the
    trash icon) is the way to fix this.

    It was certainly well disguised.

    Then maybe you could find a different newsreader, if you don't like this
    one reminding you of it.
     

    Sure, but they're there, and they're there for a reason. The guy that
    wrote the software gets to decide how he wants to deal with that,
    doesn't he. So, if you want to keep using a sig too long, I guess you
    either get to put up with the message, or not use that tool.
