[ap-calculus] possibility for customized signatures

Does anyone else miss the customized signatures to the emails on the AP posts? Many people had their school or city/state automatically included in their email signatures. I found it very helpful to see, immediately, from where the post came. Then there is the issue of it being less than convenient to reply personally to the poster when you have to log into the website to find their address.

So, could both issues be addressed by allowing people to set some sort of "signature" to be added to the top of the AP Comm posts? (Yes, it all can be found at the poster's profile, and more, but it takes too long to dig this up each time for so many emails.)

Currently, each post from the AP Comm begins as...

"A new post was added by Audrey Weeks:"

Could it be changed to allow:

A new post was added by Audrey Weeks, Burbank, CA,

or even more detailed, if desired...

A new post was added by Jane Doe,
Her High School
City, State
or whatever she wants

Customized signatures are a common option (I repeat, option - if someone doesn't want to use it, that's fine) to regular email, so could we get it here? Yes, each of us could type all of that information at the beginning or end of each post, but it's time-consuming, prone to typos, and may be hard to remember to do.

Also, if we can't simply press "reply" (to send a private response just to the sender), might it be the next best thing to be able to copy/paste the poster's email address to a personal reply?

Just wondering,
