Well put.

One, you're both missing the point.  Do you think a sales droid
that'll scrape a technical mailing list like NANOG for cold calls 
will respect whatever crap is put into a .sig?  Don't answer.  It's
rhetorical...

Two, "Unfortunately these companies usually also have policies 
prohibiting your accessing personal e-mail accounts from company 
owned resources".  So don't.  Set up an SSH tunnel over port 80 to 
your home server and access your non-paragraph-sized-signature email
account from home.  There's a million ways to do things and still
follow corporate rules...
