All I did (just before reporting the "loss of professionalism" bug some days ago) was add my LinkedIn url to my profile. That (IMHO) caused a recently added property (company size, IIRC) to be automagically set to null (unspecified), causing me become unprofessional. I haven't mucked with anything in my account since then other than accepting a coupon.
I believe that was my misunderstanding. I (incorrectly) assumed setting/modifying a sig while entering a post would also cause that sig to be written to my profile. That's why I was surprised when the sig I entered appeared in my post but not automatically in successive replies.
The change in the way the sig now appears in the preview window only on first content also threw me off. I don't think this is how it used to work. IIRC, the sig was always visible in the preview window.

There was much debate about this many, many moons ago and it was decided that we needed to allow members to make transient changes to their sigs for a specific message without it sticking. Changing this behaviour is an easy thing.

Sorry to disappoint you but this behaviour has not changed for years.
