Off topic: It is a good idea to put your signature
below two dashes (--) - that way clients can be

   As the passage from RFC 3676 says, that should be two dashes and a
   space, '-- '. Two dashes alone don't do anything in most news/mail
   agents.

configured to hide them (and show them on RET) as in
Gnus with (gnus-article-hide-signature nil 1) - which
doesn't work for your signature because of the lack of
dashes. Especially since you write so short messages
and have such a long signature, I'd really recommend
it.

If you like, read RFC 3676:

   There is a long-standing convention in Usenet news
   which also commonly appears in Internet mail of
   using "-- " as the separator line between the body
   and the signature of a message. ...
