Maybe so... it's not a "standard" Usenet sig of four lines.
From "Zen and the Art of the Internet":
"At the end of most articles is a small blurb called a person's
signature. In Unix this file is named .signature in the person's login
directory---it will vary for other operating systems. It exists to
provide information about how to get in touch with the person posting
the article, including their email address, phone number, address, or
where they're located. Even so, signatures have become the graffiti
of computers. People put song lyrics, pictures, philosophical quotes,
even advertisements in their ``.sigs''. (Note, however, that
advertising in your signature will more often than not get you flamed
until you take it out.)
Four lines will suffice---more is just extra garbage for Usenet sites
to carry along with your article, which is supposed to be the intended
focus of the reader. Netiquette dictates limiting oneself to this
"quota'' of four---some people make signatures that are ten lines or
even more, including elaborate ASCII drawings of their hand-written
signature or faces or even the space shuttle. This is not cute, and
will bother people to no end."
Then again you really shouldn't be listening to all the "random women" who.
keep telling you less is more.

Judging from the size of your sig, I'd guess that you have some,
err... umm... " self esteem" problems.
In sigs, size DOES matter: smaller is better.
