Email signatures kill me. In the States, it's common for some professionals to include degrees after their names (e.g. doctors will put Quack McRubbish, M.D.). However, that's actually trickled down to some putting MBA after their names (even worse on LinkedIn). Those get mercilessly devoured by many. Disclaimer: I also have an MBA, but do you know what my signature is? Just my name. That's it. Oh, and the occasional made up title I assign myself (my nearly-silent protest to nonsense titles like "Internal Sales Support Analyst II"; you're an assistant, just put that), such as "Grand Chancellor" and "Commodore".
I can see some value in having M.D. after the name--so I know I'm corresponding with a doctor--but MBA is just lame. It seems like everyone has an MBA. Maybe it used to mean something, but not any longer. (I know a lot of people with MBAs that aren't too bright.) Now when I see those letters following a name in email, it just seems like the person is trying too hard.
I haven't read all of the messages in this thread so maybe someone else has already pointed this out but is it possible that the individual sending the email just doesn't know how to change her signature?
