Since I see conflicting info in the rules about this, I would like further clarification on this matter. Are you allowing links to commercial auto selling sites or any other links to a commercial site in a signature? Here are two users in question.

It would be very beneficial if Mods had the authority to remove the offending signatures. I don’t see a way to do it as it is currently set up.
The rule currently states:
Active members (those with a 5+ post count) may display a single line link in your signature to a site that you are personally involved in
I agree - it is a little ambiguous and perhaps we should tidy it up. What its trying to say is we allow members a link to a site in their signature if they own or author the site. Personally I don’t see a problem if the site is commercial as long as they dont make the signature promotional. Saying things like “click here” or the “cheapest batteries sold here” etc.
Re: Removing signatures. I’ll check to see if there is another way to do but the way we currently have the admin area set up - where these functions are possible - its pretty locked down and restricted to IP addresses for our office. The only way to make such changes is post them here in the mods area and I will get them done.
TJackrel does own that site I see from my investigating. Insane.nick however appears to be directing people to the car site in India. His sig says something about cars for sale.

I have now removed that one too.
