Or vice-versa.

There is or was a member of this forum (whose Gallic-sounding name
rather escapes me--was it Stéphane Monnier?) who systematically
eliminates the attributions from his posts--well, at least the top-level
attribution. Actually I believe he's a severe trimmer, so in my memory there is
rarely if ever anything but a top-level attribution to eliminate. 

But then he takes care to sign *his* name at the bottom.

Go figure.

This irritated me to the point where I was going to ask him here why he
eliminated the name of the poster to which he was responding while
making a point of signing nominatively his own articles, but I didn't
because I'm striving to be a mature individual.
