Personally, and this is just my opinion, I don't care for this approach (I have
considered it) for a couple of reasons. One, it may encourage use of inline
signatures in general, which (IMO) is bad, and two, it makes the message itself
a bit harder to read. Getting the word out in a way that's annoying to your
correspondents is probably not going to have the desired effect. :-)
