Just so that I am clear on your issue here: You believe it is "okay"  
for you to put your linkedin URL in your .sig, but Gadi must not be  
allowed to put it at the top of a post?  I ask because I had to go  
back and read what you were so upset over since I did not even notice  
the first line in his post.  I bet many others did not as well.

Oh, and I think the fact it is L-Root's old IP address probably means  
no one will hire him to research it anyway. :-)
