If the idea is more important than who said it, signing
(in both the non-technical literary sense and the crypto
sense) is extra.  After all, not everything is a contest.
Alternatively, if a comment is likely to be seen as a
contest (whether by some person or some Big Brother),
again signing is extra.  And in any case there is always
the virtue of modesty.
